September has been a very busy month all round! We attended Richmond dog show under breed specialist judge Simon Luxmoore with Snik and he placed second and at the grand age of 8 and his first show he qualified for Crufts 2017. Such a good worker, awesome drive and effortless movement in harness he really deserved being shown off and we topped the day off by sharing an ice cream. Well done Snik!
The Siberians meet some more Adventure Scouts with a talk and a working demonstrations, dogs all love meeting their public and the kids had a brilliant time interacting with dogs. Some of the children had learning difficulties and it is very rewarding to see how our dogs were so very gentle and loving with the children and how the children responded.
We added a new addition to the team a shiny one not a fluffy one! A lovely stainless steel rig with disc breaks built by Dan Storey and temps have dropped enough the last few weeks to give a few test drives. We are only doing limited mileage this time of year picking a trail of about 1.5 miles to slowly build fitness. We are also getting all our dog admin sorted, renewing working insurances, servicing rigs, buying new harnesses, maintenance work on the vans and of course plenty of doggy cuddles!
