  1. http://www.klevercages.com.au This place were great and very helpful
  2. K9 company train in Eltham close by. They are excellent and have worked with other therapy dogs.
  3. Bur-ra is an aboriginal word for lightly coloured-used in context of paint colours.
  4. I have just started with Waldo. He is a mini schnauzer. It is not the articles I find difficult but that the box looks so far away. As far as teaching to pick up the metal articles I just rewarded Waldo for any interaction with the article. Put cheese on top, underneath partly inside, etc so he touched it to get it. Go for it! UD does my head in but I love it, great fun stuff to train.
  5. What size area? Where? I help manage a community dog club Friends of Manningham Dogs & Cats and we have a building we hire out. www.fomdac.org.au The money goes back into community education programs and the like
  6. How is he at holding metal? Pippa struggles to pick it up and when she finally does, her little teeth chatter while she holds it! We are very proud of you and Waldo getting your CDX and heading for UD! I can only hope we'll get there, too! I'm plugging away at UD with a certain blonde Labrador, so if she hasn't driven me absolutely bonkers by the time it is Pippa's turn, I may continue... Waldo doesn't mind the metal at all. He seems to have more trouble identifying the wood. If he can't find it he sits in the middle of the articles and returns via a jump, a perfect combination of scent

  8. K9 company. Cat and Brent are great with dogs with issues. They train at Boronia Reserve on Monday nights. Highly recommend them.
  9. Naww you're too kind They are going to take over the woooooorld!!!! :D How's Waldo going? Certainly is He is doing well! We are both trying to get our heads around UD. We are making progress and hope to enter towards the end of the year. Entered CDX at Easter to keep us both sharp! Not that he needs help to be sharp as he has some creative ideas in UD at times. Glad he didn't get involved in the rules review.
  10. What about these https://www.khatalapetlodge.com.au/product-category/dog-bowls-australia/
  11. I will miss seeing her energy and willingness to work. Well done on what she has achieved. I am sure she will miss you too, and her Daisy play times!
  12. Well done Ruby Star! Way to go Pippa! And yes I am biased!
  13. The Rotti club training has been a huge boost for my training!
  14. Great work Tassie! You should be proud of both of you!
  15. I meant to add that I love the photos! Looks like great work!
  16. Thanks for that! Got to love the way dogs keep handlers honest
  17. I have 2 plain sets and no UD dog........yet So can we be outbid Ness?
  18. After losing Shandy tragically at the start of the year, Zim has started competition well, and we're making good progress on our wishlist, with RN down, one CCD pass, and two DWD Heelwork to Music passes. Little Miss Inari has joined us, and at 5 months, is showing plenty of promise. Aiming for her to be close to competition ready by the end of the year, maybe some rally under her belt if there are some late trials. Zim's RA is done, his Heelwork to Music Starters Title is done, and he has two Rally Excellent, two CCD, two DWD Freestyle Starters and one Strategic Pairs agility pass.I'm rea
  19. Not sure where you can get this done. Does Waldo prefer knurled metals? He sure does. He is very fussy
  20. I have been given 2 sets of metal articles and would like to get them knurled. I am in Melbourne but may be able to post them interstate. Does anyone know who does this?
  21. Wow! Great work. What a great example of a senior dog doing so well! I am in awe of people who train multiple dogs.
  22. We have both CD and CDX but no RAE. I am very pleased with the way we have trained though!
