Start to run

Running I had so many false starts in running, everytime I think yes, and after a few days I get injuries on my shins. So no running for me.............
But I started all over again. What is more fun to do then to run with your dog!!!
This time I really wanted to be prepared and I really wanted to go and succeed.

First of all I downloaded a nice app called "hardlopen met Evy" to do the schema of 5km in 10 weeks you only need to pay 3,99 euro, so ok, did that.

And then start moving.

With all those attempts of running I did have all the gear for my dogs.
Belt, Harnesses you name it, this running business was no problem for my doggies.

Before I start I make sure they did potty, so I walked them normally, this walking is also important because it is a warming up also for me and the dogs.
Just to make sure I still take poopbags with me.

The first run was 20 minutes easy peasy for the furkids but for me wow, running 1 minute and then walking 1 minute, running 2 minutes and then wa…

First on the move

I will try to make a series of filmclips that is called "on the move" in this clips you see me with one of our dogs gaiting them in their breedtypical movement.
Collies are a herding or pastoral breed so it is essential that they are good movers.
As the breedstandard sais they must be absolute sound.

This first clip will be a very old one, a bit blurry and wobly maybe, and I see I improved as a handler major. Handling a dog is also so important while gaiting your dog.
Because when they run free, their movement is free, but when they are on a leash, and you try steer you dog into a direction it can affect moving badly.


This is footage of Multi CH. Flaming Star vd Slobberhoeve, this clip was shot in 2010 a bit before her 6th birthday, she is moving pretty ok. Altough my ideas in movement changed greatly, for that time and for her age she was moving beautifully.

Judy at the Valentine runway Show

Last Saturday we had a superfun event at Kynospirit.
I took Judy out to the valentine runway show. Untrained only groomed. This event has 5 judges, 2 for conformation, 2 for handling and 1 for styling.
So we put our best dress on and went on the runway.
Judy was so extremely happy that she was jumping all over the place the first half hour, but when she did a few tryal runs it went better and better.
The whole evening went by very nicely, nice people to talk to, watching dogs, watching handling, it was fun without the stress of a normal dogshow.
I never could have imagined that Judy would get so far on the show, but at the end of the evening she was in the finals and managed a best in show 3!!!!!
Super proud we went home, and I'm even thinking of entering Judy this year in the showring again.
