Almost 8 months old...!


Adonis is growing up super fast right now. He's been outgrowing his crates like crazy! We put bitework on hiatus until he gets his testosterone in and can work in different drive states (i.e. more aggression). His obedience is fantastic and now that he's growing into those HUGE feet, he's starting to look a lot more like his dad when he heels. He learns things exceptionally fast and I'm having a blast training him. We'd been slacking on tracking in the interest of getting Malachai ready for some big competitions at the end of this year but today we did a 30 pace track on dirt and he did well and even did the article without prompting! You can see he's still fugly teenager but he looks to have the angulation of his mother and very similar body type (not a bad thing!) .... I just am not so sure about those dang ears! Though the tounge photo is priceless since both Cindy and his sister Andorra have taken similar photos!

Andorra (Andy) is coming back to spend the week with me starting Friday so will have some updated photos of her!

Puppy Updates and Games

Well Peanut found his way to his new home yesterday. Myself and a friend made a 4 hour trek up to Fresno California to meet his new family about half way. They live up in Santa Rosa area. They've had large dogs before and currently have a nutty little Yorkie for him to play with, as well as two kids. I'm very excited he found such a good home!

We had the SW Regional Sieger Show this weekend. Mama Cindy was about 10 weeks out from having puppies and decided to blow her coat in patches! I thought about pulling her because she looked terrible IMO but I figured she was entered and we might as well compete. Good thing we did....we walked away with V2 in the Working Class (her first V-Rating!) which completed her SILVER Award of Merit with the USRC. Yayyyyy!!!

Dasher, her brother, took V3 in a very large Open Class. Not too shabby? Picture with the Judge....

Adonis has been doing great. He is a regular Spiderman and can easily climb a 2 1/2 foot gate/fence. So we started crate training and he's been sleeping thru the night and indiciating when he has to potty. His sister Andy (Andorra) will be coming back next week to do some Obedience training and drive building. She's already putting holes in her owners and has become quite the alligator. :)

Here's what I've started with Adonis this past week.....

- Pushing him away so he pushes to come back into me
- When he looses focus, tap his butt and run away
- Food games to teach stretching his neck and the first steps of prancing-type heeling
- Bait with food and as he goes into it, I put slight pressure on his chest so he really has to push into the food to get it
- Feeding out of a food bowl and pulling him away from it slightly so he really digs in and eats
- Retrieve Games with a ball or thick tug so he learns to really open his mouth wide ... if he doesn't bring it back I run away from him
- Tracking is starting this weekend
- Small amounts of tug with little to no grips given and put away when he's frustrated
