March 2015

March 2012- That is when Marnie came into my life.  Here is the first post about that day

 Upcoming in April- we signed up for Rattlesnalke Avoidance.
Since she loves to go after things in the grass- we may as well try this class too!
Yes thats dirt all over her face

February 2015

Februrary turned out good and bad. My daughter had to put down their old pit bull-Rocko- what a super dog. Great with the kids, he will be missed by all-especially his bulldog pal Bluto.

 NOT too worry Heather and Brian- brought home a Frenchie! My new grand doggy-Layla- Marnie's  not sure. But she did try to play with her and it was way too cute.

January 2015

Its been a while since I posted.  We have been busy, Marnie has grown to be a happy healthy strong dog.  Last summer we enrolled in Kays class  (KAYS SOCIALIZATION)  -OUT AND ABOUT . It was a group of about 6-8 dogs.  We walk the big malls and mill around through stores and pass all the hub bub. The dogs really learn how to just hang out-it was so fun. We do focus exercises and at the end we have lunch at an out door restaurant in the shopping area.

Last winter we completed a 6 week course on AKC tracking with the Sacramento Dog Training Club.

Yeay Marnie passed her Tracking class! here is a pic of the proud girl with her pink harness and tracking line. We had a blind track, meaning we didn't see it get layed- 30 mins old, 2 right angle turns left and right, and an obtuse (45 deg ) turn, got to the article and promptly laid down. yeay. Thanks Meg and Sue for a super class!
Up next- we are in a new series of out and about, first class last sunday ( Mar 1). We walked all around the "Fountains" at Roseville and sat in front of Whole Foods
