Don’t fear – I’m superb!

I haven’t written on my weblog in lots of months.  What occurred?!

All is nicely! I ended operating day-to-day operations at FDSA, and that freed up time to do what I’m significantly obsessed with – schooling.  Free schooling, for essentially the most half, as a result of I spend a really excessive share of my day on Social Media; Instagram, Fb and TikTok.  I attempt to publish academic content material of varied kinds; habits, canine sports activities competitors expertise, getting together with individuals, and so forth…just about day by day. And since doing that is extraordinarily gratifying for me, it takes up various time. Which is ok – I’m blissful!

Therefore, my weblog has suffered neglect.  It’s simple for me to seize a fast clip out of a coaching session, clarify what I’m doing or why I do it a particular means, after which throw it up on IG or FB.  I can even do random Reside occasions on the varied platforms to speak no matter random ideas are floating round in my head on the time.

With my weblog, I attempt tougher to write down intelligently, proofread (okay, nonetheless not my energy), and manage my ideas right into a extra complete package deal.  That takes simply sufficient effort that I’ve been neglecting it.  I promise I’m going to attempt to enhance!

So about canine and canine coaching.  Let’s catch up a bit.

I despatched Cube again to his breeder a number of months in the past.  As a lot as I attempted to make it work, his temperament was not applicable for my scenario. I dwell in a household with a number of different individuals and I’ve an lively family.  Whereas I used to be prepared to work together with his dog-reactive habits in public (which was bettering!), I lastly got here to acknowledge that the general package deal – not simply his habits in public, was neither a protected nor satisfying match for my household.  Whereas administration is all the time an choice, administration failure is the norm, not the exception, and I couldn’t settle for that danger.   As a result of his breeder felt that he might be rehomed to a scenario the place his temperament wouldn’t be an issue, I agreed.  He’s at present in coaching for IGP and is doing nicely within the sport.

At across the identical time, a buddy had a litter and had additional puppies that had not been positioned but.  I provided to foster a pet and provides it a canine sports activities basis.  That pet, Xen, is now eight months previous.  I made a decision to maintain him and he’s now my canine.  And whereas he’s a reasonably typical strong-willed male from working strains, we’re discovering our means and hope to have a powerful and aggressive future when the time is correct. In a future weblog, I’ll discuss him a bit extra – how I characterize his temperament, and what which means for his future as a canine sports activities prospect.

Lyra is now nearly 11 years of age and as charming and good-natured as ever.  Brito is 9 years previous and is a typical terrier – hasn’t slowed down one iota.

As a consequence of COVID I haven’t traveled in a few years, and actually, I don’t miss it.  After I do resume journey, I think will probably be an especially restricted affair.  I do miss seeing my buddies across the nation although.

FDSA is within the means of getting a shiny new web site, which retains me busy on that finish.  Search for it across the finish of the yr. We’re additionally about to introduce our first “single day” conferences, so you’ll be able to study a complete lot about one factor – in a day!  The primary one is arising in Might, and the topic might be nosework.  Study extra right here:  FDSA Nosework Convention – On-line!

Anyway…that’s about it for now!  I hope to be again to writing right here a minimum of semi-regularly.   Right here’s a photograph of Child Xen, recent from his bathtub:
