Spoiling the dogs???

Ok, on some days, things don't go as you want to. Today was a day like that. So when I drove home from my job I had to go by the Welkoop, that is an agriculture store in the Netherlands. Actually I didn't need anything. I have toys, enough treats, nothing was really eaten, gone and empty, so why should I even go.
I don't know, some people will buy shoes, or eat chocolate, and I like to spoil the dogs.

The first thing I bought was really a treat, especially for Vivien, it is a puzzle. And according to the box it is a 4 in 1 puzzle, so in the upcoming days I'm gonna figure out how that will work. And hopefully I can make a nice picture of a videoclip of it.

Second thing and third, I bought, are 2 teethcleaning products. Maybe that is not really something the dogs think of being spoiled, but it will benefit to their health.  Because of petsmile month, I wanted to buy it now and try it. Hopefully I will see results before the month is over. I still have my denti fresh teeth powder, ( look at one of my last posts) but as I told before, that product is discontinued so when that jar is empty I will need a new product.

I bought a foam, wich I will use on the puppies (wel 9 months in not a puppy anymore) because they have beautifull white clean teeth. And I bought the gel for the older dogs, not that they have bad teeth, not at all, but because they are older, tartar and plaque will build up on their teeth more easily, and I often need to scale their teeth with a scraper. Now I like to try if using this gel, I might not need to scale teeth anymore, or I hope less.

Let's see how things go I will keep you updated

The collie standard by Mia Ejerstad

Another great book, and I happen to be the lucky girl who has both of her books. It is the same, but the small one is the first one she published and the larger one is the new revisited one.

Why is this book a great one??? Well this one will explain with picutres to go with it, how the ideal collie should look. All parts of the collie come along while you read this book. Headtypes, what is a perfect shape of a head, what is acceptable, and various faults, in bigger and lesser degree. But also how angulation needs to be in front and back, and what is an acceptable tail! I think that it is very nice that all ellements come in to vision with many drawings,  because while explaining a form in letters, it is far more easy to see for youselve on a picture.

Many beautifull drawing from the hand of Mia are in this book, she really knows how to capture the beauty of the collie and make the standard of our breed into vision.
I do go over this book so many times, and it gives me a clear view of …


Snuffelbox, sounds great doensn't it?? I've been ordering the Woefbox for a while, and after 4 boxes I had a lot of treats for my dogs, that's cool ofcoarse but I don't want my dogs to be fat, so I decided to just quit the Woefbox.

Now I was almost finished with all the treats from the box, I found on the internet a similar kinda box, called Snuffelbox!!!! I got curious of it, so I decided to check it out.

Fun thing is, the Snuffelbox gives some percentage of the income to great sources like shelters and stuff, so while ordering a box, everytime I will give to charity aswell!
On the other hand it is a bit more expensive then the Woefbox, so that is a consideration.
With ordering I could say if I wanted to order for a small, medium, large or giant breed, so that is very handy also, and I could order it for one month, every month, or every tide of the year.

Now letts go and see what is in the box!!!

1 jar of premade icepopcicles for the doggies!!!
all for paws dental che…

Judging at dogshow-ringtraining

Last year, in December, yes I know a while back, I judged at the showtraining event of Dogshow-ringtraining Drouwenermond.

I was asked if I wanted to do judging of their last day of the training season, to make a nice ending of their trainingsyear.
Ofcoarse I'm not a real conformation Judge, but I have been intensively showing dogs since 2004, so I know how things are going in the showring.

So in december it was their end of the season, and my first ever judging apointment.
There where multiple groups of dogs and it really went just like a real dogshow, only I went over the dogs, not judging the dogs, but taking notice of their handler if they where doing the correct thing.
Showing me the bite of their dog, gaiting them and presenting them.

For every dog was made a judging report with points, so that was really curious for me too.
I was so focused on all aspects I didn't really know who was my nr 1 handler.

So when they calculated points I was just as curious as all the partic…
