First Time Leader
I've explained lots over the years about how I start new leaders, so I won't go through it all again but I had Ditto in lead for the first time this morning and thought I'd share a few pictures!  Surrounded by my TOP leaders it will be very hard for things ...

Cool Runnings!!!
It is that time of year when the temperatures start to creep up the scale and we reluctantly, sometimes too reluctantly, scale back our runs with our canine athletes! I've seen a lot online lately about 'magic formulas' to help you decide when it is 'safe' ...

King Of The World
Tig and Chibs had a heated game of King of the World yesterday! "I'm KING OF THE WORLD" " Seriously Tig - you are a loser. You are stuck. I'm King of the World!"   "I am not stuck. I can move if I want to."   "Maybe....." "Now I'm KING OF THE WORLD!" "Get o...

I'm Such a SUCKER!!
For years my friend Lisa has been bragging to me that 'her sport' (herding) has much better weather than 'my sport'. As I sat in her house hunched over a cup of coffee warming up while my team camped in her yard for a few hours or sat on her couch telling t...

This One is Just Right...
It's been a hot summer. Usually I can get a few teams out in July, but it isn't looking like that will be the case this July. Temperatures just haven't been cooperative. We are passing time trying to stay in shape and trying to stay cool. Snap says holes he...

"Did You Just SNIFF ME?"
"Did you just SNIFF ME?" "Seriously, do that again and I'll unleash all levels of Ginga Ninja badness on you" "These paws are lethal weapons and could take you out with one skillful swipe" Yeah, KD he is SHAKING in fear. "The bigger they are, the harder the...

HAW!
I am frequently asked about training leaders, so thought I'd share an incident from this morning. As many of you know Missy is a leader - a race leader, in fact. She lines out, she sets a good pace, will readily pass distractions, and most of the time, take...
