Dog (show) tip of the week…

I always hate cords. They are obnoxious and always tangled and in the way and catching on things or caught in lids you are trying to close.

I was pretty happy with how things changed when I added these to my equipment…

 

Cable Cuffs. They have all sorts of these things in varying sizes and they have velcro style cord holders, pretty much anything you can imagine. They are inexpensive and can be found at any hardware or department store in one form or another.

I like these in particular because they are brightly colored and hard, so they are less likely to get lost or chewed/eaten by a dog.

I really like these because they keep my cords out of the way. I’m no longer closing cords in lids, they arent wrapped up around things, tied in knots, or hanging out everywhere. It makes packing up the dog equipment a breeze, and everything is that much tidier.

Wicked Updates….

Our Wicked litter is growing up quickly it seems.

Miss KJ (Yellow collar puppy – officially known as “Grandiose NABs A Wicked Stacked Deck”) is off on her grand adventures doing obedience and has even won Best Baby Puppy in Show at a UKC show a few months ago. So proud of her and look forward to hearing more awesome things from her in the future.

Miss Gizmo, who stayed here (was the pink collar puppy – officially known as “Grandiose Only Wicked After Midnight”) has been herding all summer and even found time to visit a few shows. She has 4 points towards her AKC championship as of this point, as well as a Puppy Group 4 and a Bred By Exhibitor Group 4. We are planning to enter her in the herding trials in the fall to try for her HT.

A fun surprise…

I checked the Canine Chronicle statistics last night. Mostly because I was curious to see how certain dogs were ranked (like Nash, our Gables sire, who is #3 in breed points and #7 in all breed points in only two shows) and was pleasantly shocked to find our little Flutter is ranked #19 through the end of March in all breed points! Go Flutter! Woohoo.
