Our little freestyle group, called Muttley Crew, (Great Dane to Havanese in size and breed) have been practicing outside in the winter. We've started searching for an inside rental as it's dark and cold in the winter!! I've got my fingers crossed that our one 'lead' works out! We'll need to bring mats for the floors, but otherwise it just might be perfect.
Last summer, I helped organize a freestyle competition on the Island. Unfortunately my little dog froze in the ring. He just couldn't handle all that attention! So, alas no videos!
We're hoping to perform at Pet Expo at the end of May in hopes of interesting more people in our area and getting them to join us in our sport. So, I've got my fingers crossed that this time, my Tucker will be ready.
He loves to train and has quite a few tricks up his sleeve. Right now we're working on going sideways towards me. "Tuck" took forever to learn, but this one seems to be going more quickly.
I don't know if anyone has heard of kikopup on Youtube. Emily Larlham is the trainer (out of Southern California) and I think she's amazing. Lucky for us she's coming to the Island at the end of March to do a clicker training class. I'm going!!!! Yeay!!!
