Herding – March 30, 2013

Yesterday, since I had to drive in to Winnipeg to pick up dog food for work, I decided to bring Bear with me and go herding for the first time this year.

CARS AAC Agility Trial: November 17-18, 2012

CKC and AHBA Herding Trials – September 28, 29 & 30, 2012

Two weekends ago, Bear and I attended our first herding trials ever. We attended a few classes this spring and Bear is getting better and better with the sheep.

Encore DogSports Rally Trial–September 22 & 23, 2012

The trial was in a venue we had never been to.Continue reading “Encore DogSports Rally Trial–September 22 & 23, 2012”
