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.

First Exam For A2

Tani passed her first exam for A2 in horrible weather in Austria. She really ran great, specially considering the circumstances, so I'm very proud of her. In Austria, teams get points for each run, so we were also on the podium for combined results, despite being eliminated in one run. We are going on vacation on Friday, so this was a very nice surprise before leaving for Corsica, where we will enjoy sun, sea and mountains and forget about agility for 10 days. So before our departure, we will have to get a big dose of agility to keep us going - we will have our first private lesson in LoLaBu Land tomorrow and agility class (in the same place, of course) on Wednesday. We can't wait to start working on those turns after dogwalk we will defenitely need in the future!

Oh, and Tani filmed another TV ad last week. This time she just had to act like a dog, but she did have to be still for quite some time, which is not all that easy for her :) Once again, she totally charmed the entire crew and proved that she is a real star.

Thanks to Nina for Tani's video from Entschendorf:

Agility in Austria

We don't have any agility trials in Slovenia during Summer, so we try to attend those that are not too far abroad. A couple of weeks ago, we went to a competition in Oberwart. Tani did great, with a nice clean run and best time in jumping. Our agility run was also fantastic, but there was a tunnel next to the A-frame that Tani just had to get into, so we were eliminated :)

Our friend Maja Rokavec took some wonderful photos of Tani in Oberwart. Thank you, Maja - I am a big fan of your work!
