According to Google Analytics many of the readers of this blog come from abroad. Thus I decided to start posting in English, too. I'll gather all these posts under one link, too.
Photoes above are taken in our agility training on Sep 28th, just a couple of days before we got permanent snow cover here in Kuusamo (unusually early). Photoes present Jeppe's favourite play pal Kamu (Spanish waterdog).
Briefing about Jeppe: He's now 16 months old and has been a hard trainee due to his stubborn caracter and lust for rabbits. He's locally famous for his unauthorized adventures and otherwise charming character.
I've tried to get him more interested in doing things together with the two-legged instead of chasing game - with varying results. We've been to two unofficial agility competitions: he ran off the course in the first comp (and disappeared for 15 minutes) but managed to get through the course in the second comp though he did also greet everybody in the course personnel during his performance...
We've found Jan Fennell's writings very useful in our dog training efforts. Jeppe clearly has a mind of his own and thus we've been working to gain back our leadership in this family. In Jeppe's case a loud spap or growl works wonders when he's about to elope; he'll stop instantly and wait for us.
Hopefully Jeppe manages to get more friends since he's now bilingual! Please don't be afraid to post a comment if you feel like sharing your ideas about parson russells or dogs in general!
