    Hi there
    My name is Philippa and I live in Victoria, BC Canada, which is on Vancouver Island on the beautiful west coast of the Province. I have 2 dogs - my young dog Lukka an Icelandic Sheepdog, and Tag my Australian Shepherd. Both have their Novice Trick Training and we are working on our Intermediate! I do agility with both dogs, as well as Obedience and Rally-O. We use the clicker like crazy! We so enjoy the trick training, as it creates a lot of focus and a bond with my dog as well. We are currently working on 'Prayers', 'Barrel racing' and 'play dead'..all are really fun tricks....hope to talk to some more people soon with like interests!

    Barrel racing is in one of the trick books, which I don't have, and I'm guessing that it is going around something, like in 'horse' barrel racing it is going around 3 different barrels, so I'm using construction pylons and she go in and out of them or around them, using 'left', 'right', 'go' and 'away'....but that was just my interpretation, as I don't have that book, and can't find anything on it...anyone got any ideas...it's on the Intermediate Tricks list...
