My little rally rats strikes again, and I’m so proud! I had entered Isi and Ninja to rally obedience at Hadeland Hundeklubb today, in class 2 and 1 respectively. It was very nice to see many ridgebacks entered, and off course it was nice to meet many good “dog friends” again! 🙂
Isi had a great round, and became #2 of 25 entries with 195/200 points and her third consecutive 1.prize in rally class 2! Ninja (only 15 months old) was #9 of 51 entries with 194/200 points and her second consecutive 1.prize in rally class 1. Great work of both of them, and it was such a great feeling to enter the rally ring with them both.
Nixonalso entered class 1 and got a 3.prize today. There was some very good smells in the floor, that was hard to forget 😉
The first weekend in October we travelled to Sweden with 7 Wayosi dogs – Nixon, Fia, Ninja, Nicki, Kiito, Poppy and Maggie, for mentality test (MT) by Svenske Jägareforbundet in Sätra, Karlsborg. This is one of my favorite mentality tests for dogs, and we recommend this test for everyone, even though it is unofficial at the time being. Most dogs we travelled with are still very young, and this test is a quite hard test for such young dogs. Their age are taken into account when we summarize the results, and the main goal with this test is to know a little more about the mental qualites of our dogs, and how we could use these experients in the training of these young dogs to get the best possible dog when grown up. An official test is planned for the B- and C-litter in May 2016.
We got to know our dogs even better, and we got the answer to some questions we had wondered about. In general I am proud to have bred playful, social and kind dogs with good nerves, and we all learned a thing or three about how we should continue the obedience training to form the best dog possible. A lot of photos from the tests can bee seen HERE. Protocol and video can bee seen at the respective dogs pages.
