The most important steps of building a new routine

Did you hear a track and you have a great idea for a dog-dancing or a freestyle routine? Let’s work on it!

The first step to watch a lot of videos in the style that you want to represent. After two days you are sure that every 5 years old kid does it better than you, and you are too old/fat/short for the moves that you are interested in. This is the correct moment to start.

Although your dog knows a lot of tricks, you will not be able to use them for the new choreography. So you start to teach new ones. After the first training your back and even your face is covered by scratches, and from the next day in the moments when you are alone you practice how to spit treats backwards over your shoulder.

You imagine the perfect clothing. This means shopping of course that leads to the conclusion that you are too old/fat/short to dress like that.

You have the plan of the choreo finally. You can do it perfectly without the dog, but as soon as you try to practice with your four-legged partner it does not work. It also goes well with dog but without music. You can even imagine that the dog could do a pretty nice performance without you.

Is it worth a thousand words?

Somehow in the last two weeks I was twice in the same situation: they’ve asked some photos of me. The first one was just a picture, nothing more, and I said ok thinking that it can not be so difficult to find one. Well, it is, if I need a picture that there is just me and no dogs.

This is for example a normal party pic:

 And a holiday shot by the sea:

That’s me, working:

OK, on this I’m in the nature and there is no dog visible, but…

For the other stuff I needed some pictures with one of my dogs. That’s easier, but I’ve found some that would need a longer explanation what’s going on exactly there.

Check these:

And here is a proof that I don’t really need a partner to look strange at a competition:

But don’t think even for a minute that my dogs are better. I can be really proud of them…

It seems that it’s time to take some pictures. Real ones, I mean.

Dear famous show breeder,

Now that you are well-known in some countries and everyone can see your success, I feel a bit strange about the whole thing – maybe it’s my fault that I’m still at a level that you’ve already left to replace it with something else.  But it was not such a long time ago when we’ve had the same hobby and lifestyle. I remember how did it started, but do you remember?

Do you remember how long did you save money to buy your dream dog?

Do you remember how was to get up early in the morning and arrive to the dog school after a Saturday night party?

Do you remember that you went everywhere with your dog and used to walk for hours with him?

Do you remember the first litter? The sleepless nights when you were just watching the puppies? That you would to keep all of them, and you followed their life even after years?

Why do you need pets in a classroom?

They can help to concentrate

They can bring us luck at tests

They are useful as living carpets

They are interested in geography

They participate happily in conferences

They have great sense of arts

And it’s good to relax with them at the end of a difficult day

Does the size really matter? ;)

There are some evergreen topics in disc dog world, and now I’ve found one of them again browsing on FB. I didn’t want to comment there, I think it’s worth a post even  if I can lose some readers because of it :)

This time the discussion was about Microdogs and the new rules about height. Last year I’ve seen some competitors fighting for millimetres, and to tell the truth it made me sad, because I felt that the dog was nowhere in these discussions, it was just about winning a competition or not.

The field is the same for every size. To throw shorter or longer is just a decision. The dog doesn’t care if he wins or just participates, he has fun on the field. So I tend not to believe those who says that to enter in Micro is better for the dog. It’s on us to build a routine which is challenging but still healthy to our four-legged partners, but this is true in any divisions. I know that it’s easier to win with a Border Collie if you run against Bulldogs and Chihuahuas, and there is more chance to get a qualification like this. I know that to go to a Qualifier is a lot of time and money and we like to get something for our money. I like to get friends and new connections for example, and experiences on different fields and advices from others who are involved to the sport for decades. I could lose  most of these if I would enter to Micro division with a Border Collie. For me it’s not worth, and I don’t like to see if the only thing that matters to someone is to get a paper that he is better than others.
