In January we relocated to Oregon. A dream come true. Packed my stuff and my dogs in my little car and we made the 35hr journey with smooth sailing. The weather here is lovely and mild and the area is full of nature and amazing views. We have a big yard with lots of land and the dogs have been enjoying lots of walks.
Mayhem and Zae are entered in a trial in Albany, OR this weekend. Zae is entered in both premier runs sat/sun too. Lots of ring time ! Running in horse arenas will be a bit of a change for both dogs but longterm will be better. More space and better footing. I am super excited and looking forward to spending time with dogs and friends for the weekend.
However, the dogs haven’t seen equipment in 8+ months. With getting the stars to align in order to move for some time I was not doing agility. Not wanting to commit to entering a trial in one state when I was looking to leave to another. 🙂 And just taking a break and not taking the time to drive an hour each week to train dogs and worked instead.
So I took a day off and made the 3.5hr drive up to Salem and back just to train the dogs. Had to make sure we didn’t forget everything. 🙂 The barn is absolutely amazing with great surface sad it is so far away. Working with the dogs was really fun. Time off is always golden and of course after a lengthy break we have some skills to repolish and I have to get back in sync with handling myself. 🙂 But love these dogs ❤️
Also, stay tuned for details on PyrWild classes coming to the Medford area ! And for everyone else not in Southern Oregon, I offer plenty of remote, online learning options and help. 🙂 See Training
