Canada 2017

Annette and I went to Canada to see Kelly and her family on two and four legs. We had a wonderful time! Talking about breeding, training, doing training in tracking and obedience, saw Scent Hurdle Racing, met nice people and of course a lot of sightseeing.
Thank you so much Kelly & Ed!!! You know you are most welcome here!

 

Pictures from my phone camera, Annettes phone camera and my big camera.
Some phone pictures a bit blurry, but still great memories. Will fill in with more pic´s by time.

 

 


First problem.... We had missed that we needed VISA for just bumping down in Seattle and than up again, for the last flight to Calgary.... Took a LOT of time! Almost missed the flight! What a fright!

 



But... We got here and we were WELCOME!

Out meeting Kelly's friends. So nice! And two kelpies, Callicoma Tinkerbell and Callicoma Triumph from Mandy in Australia. They are the black and brown girls in the front. Doing some training and learning what Scent Hurdle Race is. We saw many good dog trainers during the visit. Kelly herself is a very talanted trainer!


 


This gang was tracking and doing scent hurdle racing. They are teams that compete side by side, two teams in the time. Three or four in each team. Kelly - HELP! ;-) Jumping 4? was it? low jumps in high speed and then grabbing their own dumbell, that is placed with three others, with each owners smell on it. Then jumping back in high speed. So scent discrimination in high tempo is no problems for these dogs. Very interesting to see :)


 


Tula.... Eh... :D :D

 

 


Meeting this cutie at the indoor training in the weekend :)
