Thank you to all who joined us for our National Association of Canine Scent Work ORT's today! You all did a great job having a positive experience with your dog. We look forward to the next event. A special thanks to our CO, Judge, volunteers and CCA team. We could not do these events without your support. 😍 Til next time...
The ORT is right around the corner. It will be over in a flash. Three minutes will seem too short and too long all at once. Remember to breath. Remember to trust your dog. Remember to give your dog time. Don't rush. Remember how amazing they are at sniffing. Remember it's all for fun. Remember everyone wants you to succeed. Remember to call "ALERT!" loud and proud. Remember to pay your dog next to the correct box. Remember you are amazing! See you Sunday. It will be over in a flash.
Rally class taking a break from a lot of turning. Whew!
Good afternoon! The ORT information for participants has just been emailed. Please let me know if you do not receive it. Do check your junk/spam folder, too. Volunteers will be getting an email on Monday. Thanks everyone for being a part of this event to keep having sniffing fun with your dogs!
It's a bird. It's a plane. It's a super star dog! When working with dogs we always try to see the potential. Asking "What can you do?" Then for dogs who need support asking "How can I help you?" As instructors it is sometimes easier to ask both questions. We don't live with the dog. The time we have together is very short. But when our own dog needs to be asked these questions it's a bit more difficult. Norby started Intro to Rally Obedience yesterday. The main goal was to continue to work him around new dogs and learn new things. If you have not had the pleasure of meeting him, he can get very excited (over reacting) to meet new dogs. Even those he is friends with can send him out of the Think and Learn Zone. He really struggled to be with me consistently. Pulling to the end of his leash, vocalizing and watching the other dogs vs. me. Arg! After 45 long minutes he started to get back to the thinking Norby. He stayed mentally with me longer, take treats less shark like and able to follow direction. Finally! On our way home I imagined those who are new or less experienced with dog training and behavior. Our students must feel 10 times more frustrated than I did. I have lots of tools to help my dog, lots of experience with success and lots of time practicing patients. I still found it difficult to keep trying. Please know each of us at CCA "get it". Our dogs are not perfect. We go through some of the same challenges our students face. This is why we practice compassion when helping our students see the Super Star Dog in front of them.
Education is one of our passions. Today, we start teaching a group of young adults more about kennel jobs and dog care.
Moose and Panzer made quick friends. Puppies are just so adorable.
