Rusa won and Chilra came at the 4th place.

At last weekend 5-6/11 I had notified to schutzcompetition with both Rusa & Chilra. I was a reserve with both of them, but I got a place and could started with Rusa. It went so great! We got 700,5 p and came on 5th place. It is a little milestone to pass the limit of 700 p! We got our 3rd Schutzcertificate so Rusa is also now a Swedish Schutzchampion!! This spring I will breed her, and hope for some great pups so their won't be any competitions this spring!!

Great news this weekend! Five of the dogs in the D-litter and one in the F-litter did their Mentalitytest at our dogclub this Saturday. It went great! To approve the test the dogs has to get at least 300 p and maximum is 600p.

Last weekend we had our annual ACD show! It was very fun, nice and rewarding weekend! First Congratulations to Dennis & Gilla who did their first obediencecompetition with a 2nd prize. Gilla is a very activ and quick dog and it's looking good for the future! The show went great. "Dexter" became 4th best male, and the judge really likes Dexters look, Dexter got Excellent. Dinger "Dino" also got very good critic, and the judgement Very Good, this depends on his old cruiciate ligament injury, so he doesn't move total correct. Gilla only got Sufficant judgement, she and other dogs with a couple of toothlost, sadly didn't get any better result because of that!
Dexter & Dino was approved on the exteriordescription and this autumn they will do the Mentalitytest who is related to the exteriordescription. Congratulations to all of you three for the good result at the weekend!!

For many years ago there was a girl who got a ticket to the big Championship thru the Youngsters SM, but she never started. I'm so proud & so happy that we have reached there, especially with a breed that many doubt! And with out my partner & our very good friends and training fellow we had never reached there!!

Elda has been to a Mentalitytest, it went both good & not so good! Elda did the test excellent with 477p, but when they came to the shots she locked to the shooter. Elda is a dog with extrem need for control in situations like that without beeing afraid, so theirfore she didn't get an approved result!

Both "Brix" & "Furia" was at their first show on Saturday. Brix got Excellent but nothing more, but very good critics. Furia got R-CAC and also very good critics! Congratulations to you all for good results!

Rusa & I competed in schutz, but in the schutzprogram we broke the competition. Rusa was stiff in her right backleg, she didn't run with power and she didn't want to jump into the car! But tomorrow we will go to a chiropractor, by advices over the phone he said he though she has a lock in the pelvis! Hopefully it's ONLY that!

Rusa & I has started the workingcompetitions för the season. On Saturday we competed in eliteclass tracking, but it didn't worked out so well. Rusa took the track very well but after a little while she started to twirl around in the track, and it seemed that she couldn't fix the track as usually, so I took her of the track. On Sunday we competed in Eliteclass schutz, and it went very well, we came on 2nd place and got nice 672,25 p even if we zeroed an important moment. So I'm very proud over her work! But something isn't quite good with her nosework, so I will check if she has nose mites!

The seasons first results from workingclasses has started to come! Big CONGRATULATIONS to Annica & Elda who 9/4 advanced to higher class in report sport with fine 529,25 p!! You are so great, and we have great expectations and hopes for you both, and we also know where it probably will take you!!

I want to say a big THANK's to the families Herzlinger & Kloth, for taking care of us so well during our visit!!
Thanks also to the family Simson, Uppsala for giving us a place to sleep before the flight!!

This weekend the first success for the year came! Christianne & "Furia" started their first official competition in agilityclass and jumpingclass I. And how they did it! They got their first "stick" in agilityclass and came on 4th places out of 64 competitors and their were only 5 of them who zeroed the race!
They also did an excellent race in the jumpingclass with only 5 faults, and their they came on 10th place out of nearly 60 competitiors! Big congratulations to you!! We'll looking forward to the next competitions!
