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…

Woefbox May

Ofcourse there is a lot of spoiling going on here at Glamourace collies. At the animal event I bought another Woefbox for the furkids and again it is full of awsome great stuff.
Because I bought it at the animal event, I could choose my own kind of toy, wich is very handy because our pack just likes to destroy every toy they get. So I asked for a not so easy to destroy toy, and I must say it is a nice one. The animal event is now 2 weeks ago and the toy is still alive!!!

So what is in the box more?!




A trial package of dogfood, by a brand that is new to me,
the lettering on the package is not a great writing to me, so I think the brand
is called Orijen, but I'm not sure.
3 packages of Renske food!!! O my gosh, Anna loves this!!!!
a package of 4 beef sticks from Alhpa spirit, again a new brand to me
another can of wetfood also from the making of Orijen
a trial size of shampoo by greenfields
a great floss toy
Dog sushi!! great for showing
Chewy sticks
Chicken jerky, again great for…

Animal Event

As I've been writing earlier this week, we went to the Animal Event in Hilvarenbeek, last Sunday.
It is the most cool event for all animal lovers. There is something to do with almost all kinds of animals. From Alpaca to rabit, dogs cats, you name it. I was very Lucky to get free tickets, from a lady I train with at dogschool. But otherwise it is wel spent money.

I took Vivien and Judy with me, because I don't show them a lot at conformation so I wanted them to have some fun also.
We looked at demo's from Hoopers, search and rescue, dutch cell dogs, that was a project where people who are in jail are working with shelter dogs to teach the dogs some basic things so the dogs can go in their forever homes with a stabilized character!

Also we did our best in a labyrint contest. I had to walk through the labyrint and Vivien needed to find me as quick as possible, that was so much fun, and if she could jump, she would absolutely skip the whole labyrint and just jump to me.

There…

My new book of ideas, and I have it signed

This weekend, I've been to the Animal Event in Hilvarenbeek. It is a cool event with everything focusing on dogs, cats, donkey's, horseys, chickens, wel you name it. All kinds of animals.
As you can see on my blog I'm a big fan of doggames and puzzles, and there where many of those games for sale ofcoarse.
But even more cool, there where demo's by the team of Hersenwerk voor honden, (brainwork for dogs) and they showed how to make little fun games with ordinary stuff, you probably have at your own home.
We where a bit late, otherwise we could have been participates in the workshop, but there was just so much to see.
So when the demo was almost over I went to their tradestand and got into conversation with all the nice persons who are doing this.
I decided to get the book Hondenspellen, by Helen Hagestein, it contains 111 games you can make yourselve, I told this lady that Vivien is a master at doing games so she ensured me it would be a great succes.
Afterwards she si…

First post since long time

I'm so sorry........ It took me a loooong time to go back to blogging as you all can see. But that is because I'm extremely busy with most of the time dogstuff.
And I think that is a great thing, I have so many new funthings to blog about.
In march I have been to the National Specialty of the Collie Club of America again, and I had some great experiences there, I started of with Canicrossing!! I still need to get into my kickbike habit again, but ok.
I have some real cool books to tell you about, some awsome Sunnybank stuff. I'm 1 Snuffelbox, and 1 woefbox behind sceduele, so blogging on that also.

Yesterday I've been to the animal event, that is one of the coolest events in the Netherlands, and I have some nice inspiration for new fun games, and other exercise stuff.

And I may not forget I bought the replica skull of Ch. Fantasy's Bronze Talisman ROM, I will work on that with plasticine, trying to make a colliehead as close to the breedstandard as possible.

So tha…
