We passed HWT exam today. Tex already pass this exam two years ago, but I didn't handle him. Our trainer did. So I decided to repeat it and handle him by myself. Pen, drive together and outrun it was all pretty well but we had a little problem with drive away and immobilization. But we handled it and passed the exam! So happy about it. We also had a first official agility training on the first day of March. It was second training for little Party and she did a good job. You could watch a short ...
Tex is a true son of his mother. With limited herding trainings this year he won 3rd place in farma trial today (out of 10)! We also won a prize for the best costume. I was a devil and he was an angel lol.
November was full of new experiences. At the beginning of the month were 7 puppies born in Diamond Rush kennel out of australian shepherd Lille. I was there and helped with the delivery. Then I and Verunka went to World Dog Show in Leipzig. We spent one noon with our friend Kathleen who is breeder to Verunka's papillon Simon. And of course we went shopping in the afternoon. Simon got excellent in junior class and his brother Dylan won the class, JBOB, JBIG and finally JBIS! Super awesome congrat ...
We spent two days at club's shows in Zbraslav. Tex and Roxy were entered to honour class.

Tex was very good 3rd out of 5 dogs on Saturday and excellent 1st out of 3 dogs on Sunday. Unfortunately I couldn't handle him on Sunday because I were in the second ring with Roxy. Thanks to Eva, who did it. Roxy won her class out of 3 females on Saturday and was 2nd on Sunday. S ...
I handled two dogs at regional & club dog show in Kladno. Little papillon Simon won junior class and got last CAJC needed for Junior Champion title.

At night before our leave were born 6 puppies in Danaishe kennel out of Nexie. I helped with delivery all night and went to camp absolutely tired. I was trainer to intermediate group and in my freetime I was trained by Romča. I really enjoyed trainings with Tex. He has so much drive and will to please. He is fast but still keeps focus on me. He would be awesome agility boy with better handler. There are two short videos from our trainings - video 1, video 2. We played game about time travelling ...
It's unbelievable! Roxy is 9 years old! Happy Birthday my special girl I am so happy you are with me. She enjoyed her day at agility training. And what we did this month?

Roxy is full of life but she get tired earlier, so I do more work with Tex and less with her. I judged fun show in Kladno and handled ...
I think I could be proud today. We went to agility competition named Staffspiritský parkúr X. Tex was entered to beginner class and he did very well! I was so surprised. He took clean run at agility and he won out of 22 dogs. There were some mistakes in jumping so 10th place and 2nd place in game (clean run again). Total? 2nd place! So happy. Tex was focused on me all the time, was very fast and cute as usual. What a pity I have no video.

He was last in begginers class, because he left place and he went to find out whose dogs are there last year. A little bit problem with focus, so this year was my priority to keep him focused on me and we did it. First run was a little bit chaotic but the second one was pretty nice. He has second best time (because he missed tunnel and I returned h ...
