    thanks guys

    have been browsing throuh some of the topics, some great stuff happening...

    i am currently teaching my dogs to follow a target stick...

    hoping to use it for some new tricks for a frisbee freestyle routine... which i may launch later this year... still have lots to work on though...

    As well as Focus has been not doing to much as he hurt his leg, so have been trying to rest him up.. now keeping a 10mth old BC quite is not an ewasy thing to do... even letting him out to toilet is done with enthusiasm...

    no life is very busy with 4 border Collies, although they are quite good and will just lounge around in the evenings for tv time...

    only time i get bored is when i am at work:msngiggle: then i am thinking of all the things i could be doing at home with the dogs....

    spent the weekend away at an agility trial.. my old boy Buddy got the last qualie card needed for his Master Australian Agility Dog Title, which now makes him an Australian Agility Champion... i am so excited....

    the 2 girls also came home with a couple of placings...

    and Focus is much better after a trip to a chiro, poor pup his back and pelvis were out as well as his neck... which were affecting his leg...
