Snill kjæreste og en treningsøkt :-)

Først må jeg bare få beklage til alle som leter etter mr.Perfect - han er opptatt! Sigurd er miiiin!
Et eksempel: I dag i fjøset, gikk telefonen min tom for strøm. Der sto jeg, slukkøret, uten radio, med to lange, tunge timer igjen av stellet. Men Sigurd reddet dagen min - han ga meg telefonen sin, så han måtte gå resten av stellet uten radio, mens jeg fikk smile, hoppe og digge til P3-helg.
Jeg bør kanskje legge til at radioen er det som tar meg gjennom fjøs-jobbingen, det er egentlig alt for tungt for lille meg :-p

Så litt trening med Orkan: Jeg og Lene (som har fått ny blog!) trente en kort økt ved GG-hallen i dag. Det var det stor, fin grusbane, så hvis vi får ha den for oss selv sånn som i dag, blir det mer trening der utover!
Lene has started bloging in english, and I decided that from now, my dog training bloging will be in english as well. After all - there are not that many clicker training agility folks in norway, and the few ones I know of are pretty good at reading english anyway!

Back to today's training:
When I called Orkan out of his crate, he lookt straight past me, and showed no interest what so ever. I didn't have much choice but put him back ("If you don't wanna play with me, I don't wanna play with you!"). I had to repeat that a couple of times, but he finally got the point - he wasn't going to get to go over to Susi to play anyway. After all I was more fun than the crate, and for the rest of our half hour of training we played a lot, and he tugged really well. Nice puppy! I didn't get as far as the "sit" and "stay" training I have been meaning to work on, I decided it was best to make it easy and focus on the tugging, since his focus wasn't exactly stabil... We got some really nice eye contact sessions, though! It was really hard for him to ignore all sorts of funny people, passing dogs, etc :-)
When we had to go back to work (we take care of ca 1000 pigs every other weekend) Elisabeth and Lars came over with Luke (Elisabeth's dog) and took both my dogs for long walk in the forest. Great exercise for my fat little puppy! Storm didn't want to leave me though, he came running back to the house, and had to be on a leash :-p
