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.

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!!!!

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!!!
