Happy New Year & Book Giveaway

Lily celebrates her birthday month in January so I’m giving away one copy of Canine Nosework of your choosing and Lily is giving away a bag of her favorite treats. Just comment below to enter. 

As we enter 2016 many of us are making resolutions, I can never seem to keep ones that relate just to me so I’ve resolved to play more with Lily. Strange as it may sound Lily has never really been interested in playing with her toys with someone. Her Christmas toy finally allowed her to find something she will fetch and return. Clean Run offers a lotus ball you can fill with treats (Update: Clean Run is currently out of the small size but they expect it to be available mid-April). 

Our other favorite new activity is zooming after a flirt pole in a controlled fashion (think of lunging a horse). This has allowed us to practice agility with greater focus. Lily’s shoulder is much improved so we’ve gone back to agility for fun. We are continuing to practice nosework with hopes of trialling in the Spring.
