Verbal Negative Markers that we learned in obedience with DD. I have to say the VNMs are paying off. We have a broader verbal communication spectrum now ...thank you DD!
|We've added a tracking page to the site. Click on the Youtube link to see a video of Larry tracking at 2 years old.
We were really excited to review Larry's tracking video. It is yet another confirmation that he is a natural in his scent work. He is a dog that has high food drive, is very curious, enjoys using his nose and shows really nice problem solving skills. We track once a week at most. But hope to get more training in during these unusually superb tracking conditions.

So, we were out training and Larry decides to strike a pose...good thing for cell phones with photo capture. This is obviously not a formal German Shepherd stack, but it is a good example of a correctly structured working GSD and what a working dog looks like when sporting all the training gear.

Our hats off to you Diane on accomplishing Ava's Basic Schutzhund Obedience title and temperament test through the DVG Ponderosa Dog Club! Even though it was frigid cold she passed her BH easily while showing off her beautiful out-of-motion sit and out of motion down exercises. It's hard to believe this little trouble maker that wouldn't stay in the whelping box is already on her way to bigger and better things in the dog sport world. We wish the best of luck and lots of success to this Schutzhund team and once again thank Diane and Jay for giving this little girl a super home.
