Kane & I are now going to Prague to compete at the Belgian Shepherd World Champs next week. This is the first year the organisers have allowed a reserve dog and handler to be entered, sadly one of the squad members dog has an injury and has had to be withdrawn which has put us in. I have been running around like a headless chicken, doing paper work, sorting out the other dogs washing, packing, shopping, I think I'm almost done. You take so much for granted when you have all you need in your van, then you have to think what you need for your dog and yourself at at a show 750 miles away?
I really enjoy the courses abroad they seem to flow but challenge your partnership, without turning the dog inside out on multi pull through's. I also like the wider weave spacing for these large dogs.
Other good news was the show at Wallingford, Inca has qualified the ABC semi final which is held at Tatton Park, we got a 3rd place in the class out of 305 dogs.
I have the last attempt at getting another in this weekend at Vyne, again a large class. The weather seems to be looking like its going to be kind to us for a change.
