Animal Event

As I've been writing earlier this week, we went to the Animal Event in Hilvarenbeek, last Sunday.
It is the most cool event for all animal lovers. There is something to do with almost all kinds of animals. From Alpaca to rabit, dogs cats, you name it. I was very Lucky to get free tickets, from a lady I train with at dogschool. But otherwise it is wel spent money.

I took Vivien and Judy with me, because I don't show them a lot at conformation so I wanted them to have some fun also.
We looked at demo's from Hoopers, search and rescue, dutch cell dogs, that was a project where people who are in jail are working with shelter dogs to teach the dogs some basic things so the dogs can go in their forever homes with a stabilized character!

Also we did our best in a labyrint contest. I had to walk through the labyrint and Vivien needed to find me as quick as possible, that was so much fun, and if she could jump, she would absolutely skip the whole labyrint and just jump to me.

There where lots of tradestands with games, leads, food, information on sports, almost to much.
I was pretty amazed by the demo of braingames for dogs, and I got some great inspiration from that. I posted a few days ago about buying the book of Helen Hagestein. That was I think for me one of the highlights of the day, our dogs love those games. I don't know how many games Vivien dived into at this event, but when there where games displaid on the floor, she tried them.
So I think I have to make many of those funthings out of my book.

It was terribly hot that day, so we had to keep easy and calm and moisturize!!! So the dogs where kept in the shade, and got a lot of water, I had water with me myself, but at the event where large barrels everywhere, and you could get clean water for your dogs out of it. That is a great thing about this event, prioriry for the animals first!!

I don't know what I have to do next year, but if I don't have a dogshow and the wheater is nice, I will go again to the Animal event.
I loved it and the dogs did too!!!

The collie standard by Mia Ejerstad

Another great book, and I happen to be the lucky girl who has both of her books. It is the same, but the small one is the first one she published and the larger one is the new revisited one.

Why is this book a great one??? Well this one will explain with picutres to go with it, how the ideal collie should look. All parts of the collie come along while you read this book. Headtypes, what is a perfect shape of a head, what is acceptable, and various faults, in bigger and lesser degree. But also how angulation needs to be in front and back, and what is an acceptable tail! I think that it is very nice that all ellements come in to vision with many drawings,  because while explaining a form in letters, it is far more easy to see for youselve on a picture.

Many beautifull drawing from the hand of Mia are in this book, she really knows how to capture the beauty of the collie and make the standard of our breed into vision.
I do go over this book so many times, and it gives me a clear view of …

Snuffelbox!!!!

Snuffelbox, sounds great doensn't it?? I've been ordering the Woefbox for a while, and after 4 boxes I had a lot of treats for my dogs, that's cool ofcoarse but I don't want my dogs to be fat, so I decided to just quit the Woefbox.

Now I was almost finished with all the treats from the box, I found on the internet a similar kinda box, called Snuffelbox!!!! I got curious of it, so I decided to check it out.

Fun thing is, the Snuffelbox gives some percentage of the income to great sources like shelters and stuff, so while ordering a box, everytime I will give to charity aswell!
On the other hand it is a bit more expensive then the Woefbox, so that is a consideration.
With ordering I could say if I wanted to order for a small, medium, large or giant breed, so that is very handy also, and I could order it for one month, every month, or every tide of the year.

Now letts go and see what is in the box!!!
