    I'm kind of excited because my "dog calender" just got fairly busy, so lots of things to look forward to.

    March 8th and 9th - MD Dogfest (and I'm going to sign him up for the trick contest :))

    Agility classes start up again March 4th.

    Barn hunt practice March 23rd and April 6th.

    We're going to a Barn Hunt Trial April 12-13th.

    Possible Earthdog on May 27th-18 depending on when/if I get Jackson his PAL.


    I THINK that's all for now, but what's on your guys schedules?

    Sounds like you have a lot of fun coming up!

    Elsie and I are going to start trialing for her CD tomorrow (gulp!). We're signed up for two shows this weekend. There's another show in April that we're going to aim for, if nothing comes up before then, too.

    We also have our nosework class next weekend, which is so fun.

    Other than that we don't have anything scheduled.

    Our lives are kind of in limbo, so dog plans have consisted of weekly Nosework classes and Rally run thrus. But, hopefully, tomorrow we'll be finishing up Caleb's URO1 title. That's if the building doesn't lose power from the snow we're expecting tomorrow.

    My calendar is filling up! I really want to finish Watson this summer, so I need to look around for more shows to enter between March and June. There are also some Ian Dunbar seminars in the area, so I need to figure out if I'm going to any of those. We're doing agility on Thursdays and Nosework on Saturdays. I'm kind of obsessed with Denise Fenzi courses now, so I see more of those in our future. No immediate plans to start local obedience/rally classes - I want to work on some stuff on my own, then try again.

    March 15-16: New England Sporting Dog Association Show in West Springfield

    May 17-18: Jack Russel Show (not for Watson obviously, just going with a friend and her dogs)

    May 31: Nosework Trial

    June 6-8: Beginning Obedience seminar in NJ

    June 19-22: New Paltz dog show

    July 4-6: West Springfield 4th of July cluster dog show

    I don't like signing up for anything more than about a week in advance, so I have no plans for the most part!

    We have a big performance at the All About Pets Show in Toronto over Easter long weekend in April which I'm VERY excited to attend. http://www.allaboutpetsshow.com/

    Then agility regionals happen in June, which I'm hoping to attend... if I ever send in my registration. I'll probably not register until I've attended another trial so I can ride the high from the trial while sending it in.

    Saturdays - Starting tomorrow I'm going to try to work on Ruby's obedience and tricks while I teach classes. *Hopefully* she is a suitable little demo dog in class.

    February 23rd - Agility Houseleague with Cobain

    March 8/9 - Agility trail with Cobain and Rigby - IF our housing situation settles.

    March 16th - Scent Detection Workshop with Rigby

    Easter Weekend - All About Pets Show with the Woofjocks (permitting my exam schedule isn't totally out to get me :p)

    Also hoping to get into a musical freestyle and disc class at some point soon.

    I don't know our exact dates now and don't want to look them up lol

    This weekend and weekend after next are our last two weeks of tricks/distractions classes. Mia will be in a tricks video.

    Weekly agility on Mondays as usual for as far as I am aware.

    TDAA trial in March with Summer.

    USDAA trial in April with Summer.

    Probably won't trial Mia.

    There's a couple more TDAA coming up but I'm going to hold off to enter until the first one is done just to see. I think if we do well enough I could knock out her standard first level title in a trial or two (don't know the technicalities of the venue yet or what the title is called off the top of my head hahaha).

    Nosework group practices 2 or so times a month at various places. Going for their birch ORT in May, I believe? Or April? I think it's May. Hopefully both will pass their birch. And I am contemplating buying another odor to start up to try to pass more than one since ORTs are so far away except this one. But I need to get on it if I'm going to do it..... Depending on how the ORT goes, the nearest trial is in Colorado this summer and I'm kind of planning to maybe go.

    Mia is signed up for a barn hunt seminar (try it again) in March. MAY do a private lesson for barnhunt just to intro her to the rats away from the other worked up dogs. I'm anxious to see how she reacts at the seminar because her drive for mice is WAY HIGH since killing those two.

    Might be doing another tricks class with Mia. I really like doing them and just found out one will be offered this spring. It's a nice, low stress thing for Mia and she loves it.

    Also doing Denise Fenzi's online NW220 advanced nosework class right now.

    Puppy in winter.

    That's about it.

    Louisville in March, less than a month away now. My mom keeps talking about pulling Georgie. I have a lot of work to do and am kind of worried about not being ready... it's a lot of money. I don't know. I'm probably going to just barrel ahead and whatever happens will happen and I will just have to try my best to not burst into tears over everybody failing spectacularly all over the place. Because that will not be a very happy ending to Auggie's book.

    That's all I have right now. The local trial is the weekend of my half-marathon, I'm trying to decide if I want to enter the dogs on Sunday (race is on Saturday.) It would be a terrible idea because I'll be nice and broken and hobbley. But I'm still thinking about it. It's right here, I don't have to travel for it. So. Thinking about it.

    There's plenty on the calendar after that but not making any plans yet because it all depends on a variety of factors.

    Mush for a Cure in March, hopefully a WCRL rally trial in April, then no solid plans for specific events for awhile.

    CPE trial next weekend for the girls.

    Pet Expo next Sunday.

    Then nothing. I haven't sent registration in for any trials because of the uncertainty of where we will be living. It seems so weird to not see my calender full every weekend, it's really sad.

    Other than that, we have disc dog comps getting planned for the spring/summer. Our disc dog club just announced our June seminar as well, it's going to be a blast!!! Whole weekend of camping and disc dog geeking-out, beersbie and disc golf.

    In terms of competition, we have some agility trials coming up, but they are pretty spread out. Haven't decided whether I am running Kim in addition to Mira yet.

    Couple more months til swim season starts. Classes depend on schedules.

    But mostly, my current plans center around getting Mr. Puppy off to a good start :)

    April 11 - CAT Muncie, IN
    May 2,3,4 - CAT Huron, OH (If the first event goes well)

    I planned on attending a conformation show with Pirate on May 31, but it's no longer listed so I think it may have gotten cancelled. I'm in the process of finding more conformation events to take him too. I'm always on the lookout for dog events within driving distance.

    CAT= coursing?

    They offered a coursing deal a while back at my sports place but I had never heard of anyone doing one with a toy dog. Summer would not chase but Mia probably would. How is it run?

    I'm not sure yet! I'll probably know better in a month. I'd like to be there all 3 days, but odds are better that I'd just be there 1-2 days since the team is pretty big and everyone wants to take part. & performance spaces are limited. I'll try to let you know when I figure it out.

    Abby's AKC agility Debut is in March
    April USDAA Trial w/ Abby
    nose work classes for both girls(haven't decided when yet)
    Control unleashed classes for Karma in June or July
    Dock diving practice is once a month starting whenever the pool opens
    First dock diving comp for both girls is in April I think

    Then throughout the rest of the year we'll have agility trials, dock dogs comps, maybe a little bit of barn hunt, and might give CAT a try...

    You guys all make me super jealous!

    I'm not competing in anything this year most likely. :( I'm too worried Talon hurting himself before we get x-rays done, so plans currently are to go to as many agility/disc dog trials and work on obedience and general relaxation things for Talon. That way he still get's in the atmosphere without really pushing himself.

    We *may* try Art at lure coursing if we can find the place that does them.
