Veteran Flyball

I put together a Vets team for Saturday at the tournament. Vets is a division specifically for dogs 7 or older, and there are a few allowances that make the game easier, such as jumping 7 inches regardless of having a height dog or not, and not rerunning false starts. I wanted to have a chance to run Koira and she how she would do. She ended up having a great time, and running in the low 5s the entire time.

Flyball Ho!

We're off for a flyball tournament in Salem this weekend. All week we have been getting ready, yesterday set up lasted 12 hours, and this morning, we are headed in to start racing bright and early. Everyone have a great weekend!

Training Tuesday: Muzzle Training

So many people asked about the muzzle we posted about last week in our round up of some of our current training equipment, so I decided to make a short video showing my approach to muzzle training in a positive way. If you go through muzzle training correctly, your dog won't fight having the muzzle on, and can safely be muzzled for a huge variety of circumstances.

Please feel free to ask questions if something isn't clear, or share your reasons for using or wanting to use a muzzle with your dog.
