We have had a busy summer! Storm has continued with his obedience classes, Kitsi appeared in the show ring, taking BOS twice. Jake is now registered with the UKC and will start working toward his lure coursing title the first weekend of October. I completed my study of the ABC's of Breeding sent in my worksheets and have received a Breeder Education Certificate from the AKC. Storm's friend Katsu, ( DreamKeeper Bullmastiffs) began competing in UKC Agility and acheived her first title the very first weekend she was out! Storm's other friend, Tempo (of Autumn Winds Kennel) became a UKC Champion and continues to work toward her AKC championship.

Storm and I worked together in our Beginner Novice Obedience Class. We made a lot of progress and will be repeating the class in April to further our skills!

February 2012

In keeping with my committment to be a continuous learner, I attended Dr. Claudia Orlandi's seminars "ABCs of Breeding" and "Practical Canine Anatomy & Movement".
I would recommend these seminars to any breeder or exhibitor, both newcomers and the very experienced!

June 2011
Storm has completed his AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy class and was successful in passing his test! He also participated in puppy agility classes, which he enjoyed very much. We are thinking he may try competing in agility after he grows up! Storm is now focusing on his training for the conformation show ring and is continuing with his socialization schedule.

Kitsi is continuing to appear in the AKC conformation show ring and has been showing Storm "the ropes" of attending dog shows.

Jake is busy teaching Storm how to be a "Man". Jake will be attending some refresher training courses so he can compete in obedience or rally competition.
