Fall Training Goals

Terra: Nosework 2, Premier Freestyle Dog, Masters Musical Freestyle

Ringo: Novice Freestyle Dog, Entry Musical Freestyle 

September is the calm before the storm for Terra and Ringo. We just got back from teaching freestyle at Camp Unleashed in Becket, MA, where there were wagging tails and smiles aplenty. It is always such a lovely long weekend. October is going to be a very full month of demos, nose work trials and live musical freestyle competitions. But this month, I am completely booked with private clients, both old and new, and carving out time to work with my own dogs is a feat every day. The weather is changing quickly too, so any nice day needs to include riding Roger before the snow flies! But even Roger has had to help with some training lately! 

 Roger, my trusty steed for 17 years, helps socialize some canine friends, TonTon and Jambo.

Ringo and Terra are both practicing their latest routines, which will be performed live at a Rally Freestyle Elements competition in Newtown, CT late October. We are also patiently waiting to hear the results of the Musical Dog Sport Association's August video competition. Here are their routines, enjoy!
