  1. 28th November 2007 - Last day of training for the year

    Last Sunday was the last obedience class of the year. We resume the first Sunday in February. Though this means that Sonny’s 8 week Beginners Obedience class gets split up into 2 sections, it also means we won’t be training in the full blast of summer, which is a good thing. We had our half way mark assessment & Sonny passed with flying colours.

    Taking both dogs to training has been the best experience. Sonny & Beau have really different personalities & it has been fun

  2. 4th November 2007 - Sonny & Beau work as a team

    Today was Sonny’s first day at obedience, and as a team with Beau. Wow, it was fun and not at all difficult. Beau had already passed Beginner Obedience and was part way through Class One when I decided to back-track and take Sonny along too. As Sonny is 3 years old and I have been training him from home, it really was a piece of cake at obedience class today.

    I took both Sonny & Beau on a double leash, but I also took a single leash along as well. I just tied that around my waist

    Last week at obedience, in the distance I saw a lady training two little Maltese Terriers. This got me thinking about the possibility of taking Sonny to obedience too, and training him up along side Beau.

    Today I spoke to the trainers at the dog club and they were very enthusiastic & supportive of my wish to train Sonny & Beau together. So the first Sunday in Nobember, Sonny will start Beginner's Obedience. Beau will go through again with him and I'll have to hold Beau back

  4. 26th August 2007 - Beau's Graduation from Beginners

    Beau graduated from Beginners Obedience today. I was so proud of that little man. Our classes were supposed to be run for 8 weeks but due to heavy rain (the venue is held outdoors) all but 4 classes were cancelled. We rolled up today expecting that we would fail our exam and have to repeat the classes. Our challenge has always been the “stay” command and as part of the assessment we needed to complete a 40 second sit & stay, a 40 second drop & stay, and a 40 second sit & stay ...

  5. 16th August 2007 - Sam at the vets

    Ohhhh! I hate it when my babies aren't home with me. My 9 y/o Sam the Boxer had to undergo surgery today for some problems in his mouth. Old Boxers are notorious for their dreadful mouths and Sam is no exception. He also is an anaesthetic risk with a reputation for being highly unstable while under. Last time he needed an anaesthetic the vets had to abandone half of what they had hoped to do because of this. So for some time now our vet has been making us aware that Sam's mouth would one day need ...
