End of Summer Update

I have been slacking on posting updates here.  It is so much easier to keep our Instagram updated. 😛

We did some competitions this summer and feeling more ‘back in the swing’ after our huge break and moving.  Zae has earned more scores towards tryouts.  Mayhem is chasing 7 QQ’s for his MACH still (with over well over 900 points currently).  I believe we will have two more competitions this year.

Thank you Terry Tuttle for all the great images ! 

The video is from a 4 day trial last month .  I am still having some ups and downs in the ring with Zae and learning to handle and connect with him best.  But am continuing to note and build on the nice parts. 🙂

Another video, with both dogs, from a 4 day trial in California can be seen here.   Was such a fun trial outdoors with mild weather and a lovely drive down the coast there.

It has been a very hot summer and the last two months or so have been extremely smokey from the wildfires cooping us in a bit.  The skies have cleared since (yay !) and the temperature is beginning to drop.  I am looking forward to training more come fall.  My field is continuing to come together nicely and is so cool to have.

We go hiking and into nature any chance possible. 🙂 The lakes are dried now but enjoyed some swimming too.

More of my photos can be seen on Flickr 

I have now offered Teeter Tune-Ups three times and it has been such a fun class to teach !  Students from nine different countries have now been a part of this course- I cannot believe it !! 😀  So cool, and I am so honored to be able to teach online.  I want to send a huge thank you to all my students past, present and future for this opportunity ! ❤️

PYRWILD has also secured sponsorship from two very cool Finish companies: AgiNotes and Nutrolin.  AgiNotes is an app, or online service, which is designed by agility competitors for agility competitors !  It is a cool database to store trainings, competition results, course maps, comments, things to work on, points of weakness, etc and even has graphs and other visuals.  Nutrolin is a human-grade fatty oil supplement company for active dogs.  My dogs are on the Sport blend and also get Skin&Coat.  The dogs LOVE the oils on their food and I have also noticed their fur is soo shiny and feels so soft.  I am so excited to be supported by these cool companies- thank you !  ❤️

A Great Weekend

This past weekend we competed in Klamath Falls and had a wonderful time !  It was such a nice venue with nice surface and everyone was sooo friendly and kind !!  The drive was through the mountains and just gorgeous- we stopped on the way home saturday for some hiking.  Spoiled in the best way.32019066_203442487113019_852202192487055360_nThe dogs had 12 runs total with four 1st places, two 2nd places and a QQ. 🙂  Mayhem earned 1st and 2nd in master jumpers.  Zae got 1st place in premier jumpers and standard on saturday and a QQ sunday with 1st in standard and 2nd in jumpers.  More importantly, had really nice moments in the ring with both dogs.  Mayhem’s ring stress was almost completely gone in one of his runs and it was a blast to run him like that.  Zae is having really brilliant moments and is beginning to find his stride a bit more.  We’re still learning to be a connected team on course but with not training or competing I am quite pleased with where we are at.  His contacts his weekend were so lovely too.  Something that I am wanting to train and should be able to soon now that we are acquiring some equipment again. 🙂 Back to training now !


Also, I am now available for private lessons in Medford.  🙂  Contact me to set something up.

Pacific Northwest Adventures

Was a beautiful day today so took off with the boys to the mountains.  Was much needed and we had such a lovely day.  Also, finally got around to using my camera and took some proper photos. 🙂

We have been competing about 2 days a month and the dogs have been doing super.  Lots of great performances and great times.  Mayhem has earned several QQ’s and is at 7 now !  He’s become so much more speedy and himself at trials…I love it !  Zae has been competing in master jumpers and holding his own with some good times.  He needs one more excellent standard leg to move up into master jumpers but has been doing amazing.

 

 

 

I am also excited to share that PYRWILD is now sponsored by Ruffdog Sports Supply 🙂

The weather has warmed up so we can begin spending more time outdoors and in the woods.  I just love these amazing dogs 🙂 Also, a reminder that I do offer ongoing private lessons/coaching and my Winter Games course has been redeveloped into an ongoing Skills and Relationship Building course.
