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.

Yes, we did it :) Tani made her final exam for A2/J2 level in agility! Once again, luck was on our side in Austria. She had the fastest times in A1 from all height cathegories, she was hyper and yet managed to follow my cues and even stop on the teeter, and she was so focused that she didn't even notice a little sheltie that escaped on the course while she was in the weaves and ran the rest of the path with us :) I sure am very proud of my supergirl - and I admit I'm pretty glad that we will get to sleep a little longer on weekends from now on. Competitions for A2 usually start about 3 hours later than A1, so ... :)

Special thanks to Josè M Davila for this sweet photo of us from Dog Olympics!

Dog Olympic Games

This weekend Tani and I participated on the first Dog Olympic Games in Lignano (Italy). The main reason why I wanted to attend this event was a discipline that has "Tani" written all over it - TUNNEL CUP! Tunnels are Tani's favourite thing in agility, she loves the sport and enjoys all about it, but tunnels have a special place in her heart ever since the first day she set her paw on agility field.

I entered her just for fun, I never thought I would be able to remember a course made entirely of tunnels. But our run was perfect, she had the best time by far in medium (over 4 seconds faster than any other dog) and even though we got 5 seconds of penalty for knocking the first bar (my fault for placing her too close to the jump), she still earned herself a bronze olympic medal. Of course, I am extremely proud of her, and the tunnel challenge was so much fun for both of us, we defenitely want to do it again!

Our friends did very well too. All of our 3 room-mates came home with at least one medal! We saw many interesting disciplines, maybe we will enter more competitions for the next Olympics. We also enjoyed long walks by the sea where Tani could play with her new friends. Thanks to Enes Halilovič and Veronika Valentin for these lovely photos! And thanks to Sandra Pavlović for the video of Tani's Tunnel Cup run!
