Our Beginner Novice debut today wasn't too shabby...
We got a 191 1/2 out of a possible 200, despite me shaking so hard the stewards thought I was going to fall on the figure 8s. LOL We lost points pretty much where I thought we would- I just thought we'd lose a lot more. Somehow, I held it together enough that I didn't cry when we were done.
Well that lasted long..
I retired Maze last season after completing her novice rally O title since I could see that she really didn't enjoy the atmosphere.. So I turned my training focus on to Sandy and Dodger for now while waiting for some tracking classes to open up for Maze. I didn't stop working her, I just didn't...
Training the Supervised Separation for CGC
I need some tips on how to train for this. Luke and I did the CGC yesterday, and he would have passed if not for this section.

Dahlia and I went to a CPE trial last weekend and had a BLAST. She got two Q's (one in Jackpot and one in Standard) and ended up getting a mini-title because of the Standard Q. We're just Level 1 and so we're just sort of figuring this stuff out. Here's my ridiculously happy...

Biting his feet until bleeding
Bichon is over 10 years old. Is there anything to prevent them from chewing their own feet? I feel like it is an allergy but what do you do? Also, he was so very ill for over a week. Vet just had no ideas that seemed logical to us. Finally did blood work and the only thing she said was his liver was...

Treat Recall
There doesn't seem to be a section for posting recalls like there was on the old forum so I hope this is okay. Kong Aussie sticks have been recalled because of mold. The ones being recalled were only sold at PetSmart. Here's the specifics;

I know I am not supposed to feed dogs cooked chicken bones because of the splintering. The pressure canned bones seem very soft to me. The question I have is this: could I blend all...
