Greta shows good moves among the sheep now! Walks nicely forward and
her flanks are natural! She is very interested as usual!
Yang and Sally have been trialling at
Breviksnas again. 4 trials in 3 days. Top handlers from Norway and Sweden
were there, and my dogs really showed their capacity on the hard trials
fields. The missing points were all my faults...
This week I will start my two young dogs Ester and Morks training. Greta is
going to try some sheep too!
Yang and Sally have been to the first
trial of the year; in the Swedish mainland (Breviksnas).
On the sunday Sally was very successful and was placed number 9. Good Girl!
Greta is very upset at the pups clinic. There are several pups there who are
staring at her
and she does not like it at all. So we are training self confidence among
other dogs at the moment.
The movie where
Gretas parents Tegwen and Gwyn work sheep.
Spring is coming, and all the lambs.
Greta is growing, at the moment she is 9.8 kilos,
and she is a clever pup. Very easy to handle, a good listener and very keen.
She is very interested in the sheep, so I have started her a little already.
Greta shows good abilities, and is very brave.
Now we have started the training, and
all the dogs really like it!
Greta has already showed her abilities, fetching 5 gimbers 20 yards away.
That was not the meaning, but she is a keen one, and she did it as the brave
little girl she is!
Greta came with SAS 26th januari. It
was a happy, calm and clever pup,
just 9 weeks old, who I fetched at the airport in the middle of the night.
Deb has made an excellent work breeding this pup! Greta i social, brave
and...does her toilet needs outdoors in the cold snow without hesitating!
In some weeks I am going to fetch
Greta, my new pup.
She comes from

Yang is just the dog you want, this is his second year on the trials field,
and he is wonderful to work with. He will beat his mother soon.
Yang is class winner both in novice and open class this year in Gotland.
Yang had a litter of pups with Megan in October. They are looking great. All
of them are sold to farms, wherer they are going to work sheep or cattle,
