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.

A Little Bit Of Everything

I'm getting boring with all these excuses why I haven't updated Tani's blog in months again ... So I'll just let it be and focus on what's important - my furry little energizer bunny :)

Tani is doing well, we attended some private lessons with Martina Magnoli Klimesova in Czech Republic and we learned a lot. We changed our startline routine a bit and reorganized our training schedule to include some new excercises and I'm more than happy with the results so far. Tani seems to really benefit from just a tiny little bit of self-controll games, it's hard to believe how little is needed if only you have somebody to show you HOW :)

I had a seminar with my friend Lukas Aigner in the UK. People were very nice, and I'm particularly happy that some of them keep sending me videos and updating me on their progress with the new moves. That is the most rewarding thing for me, so I hope they keep me posted.

We did a couple of competitons since the last post :) The most important one was B.A.C.K. in Germany where we also said farewell to "our" cute little puppy who left for his new home with Frank. He writes me regularly and they are very happy together. Anyway, back to Tani - she had some fantastic runs there, particularly proud of one 2nd place in jumping (after Silas Boogk).

We also started EO qualis but we will have to wait another month to know who will represent Slovenia in Belgium this year.

And for the future? We have some VERY fun plans :) After EO qualis we are heading to Spain and France for some agility, some hiking and some swimming, we will also visit some friends, so it will be a great little trip. We spent a part of last Summer in Scandinavia which was fun, but this year I'm planning to visit some warmer destinations, I've had it with this Winter already!

Is It Really December Already?

Oh wow, I just can't believe how long it's been since I last updated Tani's blog! Better start catching up :)

So since the last update we spent a very nice vacation on Corsica again. The first time we went there I wanted to try something new and different and I just fell in love with the island so much that I just can't stop going there :) So we're probably going there again next year, but we'll try to squeeze in another week or two of vacation somewhere else, so that we can try something new as well. I just love my life! Some photos and sweet memories on this cold Winter evening.

We attended a couple of local competitions, Tani is doing great, she and I actually run as a team more and more often and it doesn't feel so chaotic anymore. I really enjoy running with her, she is everything I hoped for and more. We take private lessons in LoLaBu whenever possible and the rest of the time we train alone or with our friends Maša and Maruša. One of our training videos in mud here:

Tani got a foster-pup in November. We are taking care of her cute little nephew until the end of the year when he will be big enough to travel to his owner. He is a very smart boy, we will miss him so much when he leaves. We all fell in love with him, Tani included. I wasn't sure how she would react to him because she is totally obsessed with me, but once again she amazed my by acting just perfectly, better than I could hope for. She is making me proud every day :)

I've been sooooooo busy lately, summer is definitely my season so not nearly enough time to do everything one would like ... such as blogging for example. Anyway, bater late then never, so some updates on what we've been up to.

First we attended a Rolli Schiltz seminar and spent some time with Tani's sister Rayas and her Christine. Here are some photos by Jana Dretnik (thanks, Jana!!):

Tani was on the cover of Slovenian magazine Moj pes (My dog) representing the pyrshep breed. More about the magazine HERE:

We spent 17 days in July competing in Scandinavia. Tani did really well in Jutlandia Cup (Denmark), she set some best times, won some rounds, qualified for the finals and was 2nd in the end. I was really proud of her, she listened, she was in a great mood for running and we had a blast. It was a really special feeling to run in front of a crowd cheering for us, I've never experienced that before. I thought I'd be nervous but completely forgot about it as soon as we came to the startline. So we just had fun and it was great :) Unfortunately no videos, only some photos by Daša Zakotnik and Gitte Poulsen (thank you both!):

After Jutlandia we went to EO in Sweden. I wish I could say we did great there too, but unfortunately things didn't go quite as planned. I guess we must have left all of our luck in Denmark :) We had two nice disqualifications and two ugly ones, I could see that Tani was still tired from all of those runs in Denmark (5 days of competitions), swimming in the Northern sea, the excitment of camping and running around with other dogs all day long ... Well, we did our best to have fun anyway, we played a lot, cuddled more than usually and cheered for our team-mates who had some brilliant results - congratulations to Silvia and Bu for 1st place, Polona and Kiša for 2nd place in large and our medium team, woooooow! Thanks to Olga Kwiecień-Maniewska we have some nice photos from there too :)

After the long trip we took some time to relax, swim, play and run, just enjoy summer while it lasts. We're heading for Corsica again next week, Tani is improving her surfing skills so she's becoming a real pro, and she's mastering a few new summer sports so video coming after our vacation. And of course, we have some competitions planned for the future, so yeah - we will keep being really busy, the way we like it :)

Agility Workshop with Susi Novak and Bernd Hüppe

I admit we actually entered the seminar with this awesome judge and fantastic handler in the last minute and it wasn't planned. We are planning so many different seminars this year, so I didn't want to confuse her with new things just when the agility season is starting and she is hyper as it is. But it turned out to be one of the best workshops I've ever been to and I'm sooooo happy that we went! We learned a LOT about handling, finding the fastest solutions for the dog and most of all making agility as safe as possible for our furry little friends. We mostly did short but very technical sequences, we got to try and run them several times with different handling techniques and then we discussed what was best for each dog. What a great idea! In the end we ran the entire course and we did really well, but unfortunately I don't have a video of that. However I do have a video with some of the exercises:

Tani Is A Star

Tani filmed another commercial last weekend, as always she was brilliant on the set and charmed everybody involved. She was relaxed, her tail kept wagging and she was really happy to be filmed and admired. She's definitely not camera shy :) Here is the final product, the other dog in the commercial is her toller friend Wi.
