7 week stacks for Zoo Me's kids

 O.k. the kids are 'farm fresh' and ran a little wild this weekend while I traveled back and forth to the show, but I couldn't resist our first formal stack session today for their 7 week birthday! We have been using a lick mat with some pork & venision canned food on it and rewarding them first just for standing on the table, then raising it up a little so they start bringing their head up, then start moving feet, etc... all while they are licking and not paying too much attention. You can tell if you went too far too fast as they will stop licking and look at you like 'hey wait a minute'.

My goal is to have them as comfortable as possible to show me what they have during that 8 week +/- 3 days window for structure evaluations.

Rally Advanced Titiles!!

 We Are Looking For Rally Advanced Titles!!

Part of our breed club's recognition program includes Obedience titles of CD (companion dog) or RA (Rally Advanced) or higher. Your dog's parents and breeder are issued points towards recognition for having offspring who excell in these areas.
I wanted to see what we could expect out of a Rally Advanced course so I looked up Course #1 on AKC Virtual Rally Program
and put the signs together in a playlist on youtube.
If you feel like this might be a fun goal you'd like to set, we want to help you out!! I am working on a prize/incentive to our first two who achieve this title.
