A Ratting We Shall Go….

We started Barn Hunt this year. Its silly, its fun, its addicting. Your dog hunts through bales of straw to find rats hidden in tubes. The Cardis LOVE IT.

Gizmo has been the first to explore it with us. Shes been to a handful of classes since January, and went to her first trial recently. She passed her Instinct test to earn her RATI title, and earned two legs of her Novice title, as well as a High In Trial – Novice!! One more leg and she will complete her RATN title. I think we are thoroughly addicted 😉






We instinct tested Gable a few weeks ago and he will start going to classes with us as well here in the next few weeks….If you can, find a local group and do some instinct tests, it really is a FUN sport!!

Herding We Will Go….

This spring has been an adventure – we starting taking herding classes with Gable and Gizmo. Gable herds sheep, while Gizmo much prefers the ducks!

Our goal is for both of them to earn their Herding Tested titles this summer/fall….trying not to aspire any higher than that for the moment – herding is a workout both mentally and physically!

Gizmo has been channeling her inner Leprechaun…
