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.

Sheepdog Video And Tani's First Real Snow

Here is a video of Tani on CANT. Of course, this is not all she had to do, just one of the exercises. I think she did very well, specially considering that this was our third encounter with sheep so far. She sure showed that she has drive and interest for the flock, no doubt about it :) Our next appointment is in 10 days and the countdown has already begun!

On another note, we had the first snow of the season yesterday. This was Tani's first real snow with me, other than snowy left-overs we had in February when she came to stay with us and those that we saw in the mountains. Since the temperatures are still to high for snow, it only lasted one day and is already gone today. But yesterday everything was nice, clean and white! Tani loved it, of course, she ran up and down the fields trying to catch snowflakes, rolled in it, tried to eat it, played with it - she did it all, preferably at the same time. My fingers were freezing, but I did manage to take some photo-evidence of it:

It was fun to see Tani moving those sheep around! She's a natural for sure!

Snow already? Makes for cute photos but mom says she is not at all ready for snow yet!

Love the snow pictures. It lets me know what I'll be in for in a few months! I just got my Pyr Shep puppy (the videos of Tani were the deciding factor between a Pyr Shep and some other breeds). I can't believe how much he looks like her! Keep the videos coming!
