Just for fun.
Every activity i do with them, is from what i have read. So i read about dock diving, and started the bush version for my dogs, using a lake, and a steep bank into lake.
I do lure coarsing at the local ridgeback club that let us come along on some nights.
I do tracking with the GSD coz he loves to wear a harness, and find his tug! and who could deny a boy that? lol
I do obedience within these activities. And within every day.
I do bush walking
I do hunting rabbits
I do agility
I do bike rides with Pohm as she loves speed WITH me, and i dont run fast enough
I do cafe trips
I do camping a lot
I live in a nature reserve and like to be in it with my dogs
Im innit for the fun.
I have tried local options for clubs, and voted with my feet having been underwhelmed by training methods used. I know i can get better results with my dogs training in drive.
I use being in nature, as a form of therapy i guess. And having something to do in nature (dogs) makes for a lot of out doors hours, in fresh air, getting exercise and relaxation. I happen to like high drive dogs. And can appreciate where they are coming from, as my engine tends to rev a little fast. So for me n mine, its Win win.
