KCI and sunny summer days :-)

After Brookes tunnel incident we got her checked out and found that her neck was very tight. She has had laser treatment and stretches to do and is back to off lead walks and little bits of fun in the field again. We have a Hoopers workshop booked for her in September so I have been getting her used to running through a hoop which she picked up straight away, clever bean! 

We are loving the long evenings and sunny weather and the dogs are having loads of nice stubble field walks. 

We went to KCI at the weekend and had very mixed results! On Thursday I ran Dolly and Sparkle (pic of me about to set off with Dolly!) Dolly worked well and although she got E'd in both courses she did some lovely work and super duper weaves :-) She did get put back on two out of the three contacts tho...oops! Spark just had a pole in the British Open jumping but got a brilliant time, unfortunately we got E'd in the agility but pleased with how she worked.

On Saturday, Matt and I went and the older two shelties and Spark had two runs each. Sparkle got E'd in both of hers again but again ran really well. Brodie was amazing running on lower height and won both of his classes, Grade 7 jumping and agility. Brax was flying and caught Matt by surprise at her speed! She got E'd in the jumping but managed a 2nd in the agility despite a flying hamster impression off the dog walk! 

Brodie loves people watching! I have never been placed at KCI so my very special boy has made up for it!

Little Miss Sparkler after training today at the field...snuggling was not necessary though! She is working really nicely and for some reason decided today that she was only going to do four stride dog walks in straight lines. Bit weird for her to suddenly start doing it, would rather she put in five strides really!
