Tani ...

... was born in a litter of 4 puppies on December 25th 2008. She spent the first two months of her life in the Loubajac kennel in the French Pyrenees. Her mother is Pecquelette de Loubajac and her father Hob-Nob's Victor.

When she came to stay with me, we started Silvia Trkman's puppy school, followed by Sivia's tricks class and later on agility handling classes in LoLaBu training center. We do everything using only positive training techniques. We are very fond of Silvia and her dogs, specially the crazy little La who is Tani's 3/4 sister. We also attended handling classes with Daša Zakotnik and Polona Bonač.

Tani has many passions in her life. The biggest one is agility, of course, but she also loves playing with her beagle sister and BFF Xsara, hiding her toys in the most odd places, running through the fields and meadows, playing with sheep and eating.

I really have to brag today :) Tani and I had the test of natural attitude for herding dogs in Italy (called CANT). She did extremely well and made me incredibly proud. Her results are (options are: very good, good or insufficient):

Natural attitude:
Resistance: very good (very fast)
Jumping: very good (agile)
Recall: very good (immediate)
Behaviour with owner: very good (attentive)
Behaviour with other people: very good (comfortable)
Behaviour with other dogs: very good (playful)
Behaviour with unknown objects: very good (indifferent or playful)

Pastoral attitude:
Interest for the flock: good (interested from 30 to 10m)
Approach to the flock: very good (approaches the flock as soon as released by the owner)
Conduct with the flock: very good (interested, agitated)

Result: Suitable
(options are: suitable, the test has to be repeated, eliminated with no option to repeat the test).

I will add the video as soon as I recharge the battery on my camera.

After the test we had a lovely running contacts training, and we are also celebrating 10 months today, so we have many reasons to party :)
