Performance Havs!

I just have to say that I am TOTALLY TICKLED that even though Kodi was home this weekend, we had THREE Havanese out there doing a tremendous job in Rally and another doing Barn Hunt in the new England this weekend. Go Team Havi!

I'm thrilled to see more and more Havanese out there as ambassadors for our wonderful breed!

I had the pleasure of watching them all perform, Karen, as I was stewarding rally at the show, as well as being a spectator at the breed rings where 14 Havanese were competing.

I especially enjoyed watching Kathy taking her two through pairs rally, which is a new class for us. It was a great four days and our kennel club's 100th show on Sunday.

The dogs have to hunt through piles of baled hay to find a rat that is safely encased in a PVC pipe contraption. At the lowest level, there are 3 pipes. One empty, one with bedding from the rat's cage, and one with the rat. The dog has to find the pipe with the rat. As the levels o up, there are more pipes, more decoys and more rats to be found. At the highest level, you don't know how many rats there will be, you just have to have your dog work the area until you think they've found all the rats. When you call it, the judge will tell you whether you're right or not.

The sport was originally designed for terriers, but it turns out that lots of other dogs enjoy it and are good at it too. (including Havs! )

One of our puppy owners sent a video of one of Kodi's half brothers doing his first open jumpers run. A train went by right after he entered the weaves, and you can see it passing in the background. He didn't break.

It's an mp4, and I can't figure out how to post a link to it. Karen, I'll forward it to you.

I had to Google "Barn Hunt" but that looks like a great activity for the dogs! Looks like there's some going on about 60 mile north of us!

Go try it out! The first step is a "rat instinct test" which shows if your dog has any interest in the sport. You can go on from there if you both like it!
