Hi everyone, Some of you may know that I have been preparing a Canine Freestyle dance routine with my Great Dane, Honey, in the last few weeks for a public performance. It was a last-minute decision to learn a new routine instead of doing our old one and so we had been practising VERY intensively! Anyway, we had our performance last weekend and it went quite well!

She may never be as fast and agile as a colllie but for a giant breed, she is doing pretty damned well! :dogsmile: I did give her a break of 2 days in the middle of last week from training (following on from Snook's advice) - so maybe that helped. To be honest, I think it helped me more than her! :dogtongue2: OK, now we can relax a bit. Am going to start teaching her to cross her paws!
