    Hi, I keep checking back to see if the challenges have started up again. The one where there were individual tricks for beginners intermediate and advanced but there aren't any. Was that just temporary? Or will they be coming back? I loved them and it gave me a goal of training with a deadline whether I won a challenge or not...

    I would love to see them come back. Did I maybe miss an announcement saying they were ending or something?

    Yeah, I'm intrested in this too. :)
    Even if I don't really train like that anymore... :D

    Hey szecsuani,

    Train like what?

    Just curious what kind of training you meant.

    Hey Jean,

    That's great. I am glad to hear it. I am sure you have been really busy.

    Thanks for responding.

    I have started a whole new training technique lately.
    I don't decide what I want to teach. Of course I always have an idea, that would be cool, but I don't stick to it.
    So I just sit down on the ground, with the dog in front of me, and wait for her to do sometihng. If she starts doing something that I like, I click, and wait what turns out of it... :D
    Yeah, a littlebit free technique, but I just love to see Pami thinking! :)

    Hi, Jean,

    Just a note to let you know that I received my prize for sending in the winning entry for the DTA August Challenge. What a great gift for this time of year when days are short and I'm looking for things to do in the long evenings!! Thanks!

    However, I feel guilty for accepting a first-place prize when, as far as I know, mine was the only entry.

    Now that you mention it, I still didn't recieve the graduation plush dog...
    I hope it's not because those postmen... In hungary, a lot of posmen steal the stuff they have to deliver... :S
    I hope this is not a case like that...

    Ah it's no problem Caninehorizons!!! :dogsmile: Every penny that I earn through the new subscription plan goes directly into the development of the Academy. This includes monthly challenge prizes, etc.

    I hope that you have fun doing the puzzles. :dogsmile:

    Szecsuani ... Still haven't received it? :( Must be because you live so far away...
