Ready to go in the ring

Erik is having a busy time in Denmark. After competing in an obedience competition a few weeks ago, this time it was back into the show ring with Kirsten. At the weekend he went to the Danish Terrier Club show, where he took BOB on his first time in the Champion Class, and then won the Club Champion Certificate as well.

We are so proud of our boy!

But as you can see, it’s very tiring winning all these prizes!

Dreaming about a successful show

Doing What Comes Naturally

Waiting her turn for the Go to Ground

Last weekend, Palma disguised herself as a Dachshund and went out for the day with the UK Dachshund Trials Club.

 
In the morning we did some tracking, then after a relaxed picnic lunchwe had a go at go-to-ground and chasing a rabbit lure.
 
Palma really enjoyed the tracking, and proved to be very good at it; the go-to-ground she wasn’t quite so keen on, but she proved to be very enthusuastic about charging up and down with her new Dachshund friends when the lure was set up.
 
This group meets every month, and although I shall unfortunately have to miss then October meeting, we will be back there in November to have some more fun!

Tired but happy at the end of the day

Erik takes 4th place in obedience

When we came home from Denmark, Erik stayed behind with Kirsten. We are still waiting for Beauty to come into season, but in the meantime Erik has been having some fun.

Last weekend he went to an obedience competition, and came fourth overall – pretty good for just a few week’s practice. Next weekend he will be at the Danish Terrier Club’s show – his first time competing in the champion class!
