Something new for shaping performance over jumps. Current thinking is that "opening up" the wrap and loop while going over a jump not only reduces injury but can be faster than a tight turn especially with the increased prevalence of winged jumps.
So we have created this nice, clear, impact resistant Loop-eeZ to re-shape and force a wider sweep around the jump wing. About as big around as a pie plate and 24" tall, just the right size for just about everyone. Clear, lightweight and no sharp edges make the risk of injury slim. And only $35.00 each, taxes included.
Health & Lifestyle
I predict a new trend in interior design for 2019. Having your kitchen cabinets match your dog.
Sure makes it easier when you can take someone to the paint store and compare the sample chips to what you are trying to match. Or you can put the kitchen reno money towards a new poodle that matches what you have, and put the change in your pocket. That makes much more sense.
Roxanne is here on 23 April, and I have the schedule for the first half of 2019 updated. Kathy is here for massage and nail trimming. Just like the clocks, she switched to the Summer schedule - every 2 weeks More info.
Michaela is back nearly every Wednesday. There are openings in the early afternoon and early evening. Contact us for booking appointments.
The March St. Patrick's day trial has passed and it was a great day. Most of the snow and resulting meltwaters were gone and the Sun came out. No rainbow, no pot of gold. Maybe some Leprechauns. Pictures and results will be available soon.
The January CARO trial is wrapped up and the results are posted. Heavy snow the night before prevented the photographer from making an appearance but everyone else made it. Results and reporting.
We were the venue for the PCC Scent Detection sanction match on January 12, and everything worked out well. Thanks to Jane Book for coming to Judge, and for all the entrants who braved the cold to try their hand at Scent. It was quite the learning experience, and valuable lessons were learned as we strive to get a CKC registered Trial approved for later this year.
Some poodles are black,
some poodles are blue,
If it weren't for the snow,
I'd have less to do.
Pynky & The Brain
Are you pondering what I'm pondering Pynky?
I think so Brain, but wouldn't a silent alarm only be useful if you were plagued by a mime crime wave?
