Smile We took the plunge and joined!

My husband and I just loved the IPO club we checked out this weekend. Icon and I went for a private evaluation 2 weeks ago, and then on the 4th went to our first club training and absolutely loved it. Although Icon is the only Dobe there! Mostly Belgian Malanois and they compete on a high level. Hopefully Laura w/Reggie (Dobes&Hounds) and Kelly w/Ava or her future male pup (Kelcoblue) will join too! My hubby is interested in helper work which is GREAT!!

Here is a picture taken at training on Saturday.....we were working on "Watch" and he's doing so well!!!

haha, I hear that, do you know how many pictures I delete where there is just a tip of a nubbin in the frame? Or sometimes, no dobe left in the frame at all!

Thanks! That is Ramsey :-) She's the photogenic one, Gina is the moose :-D Her ears looks so good there! I can't wait till they are done (both of them of course, but Gina is no where near done), they look so solid in the pic, but they aren't at all yet. Semi--but not done.

Refresh me, he's half and half right? Or is he all euro?

Edited to add-- nevermind, I remember now I really like the breeding.....

Yep, half and half =) I'm hoping he will do nicely in both areas....AKC Conformation ring and IPO/Schutzhund. <fingers crossed!!!>

How about your girls?? Are they all Euro? Or cross?? Her ears look GREAT! You are right they look really solid. Wish Icon's looked that way..LOL, I believe we have a LONG way to go. They stand but very floppy, flimsy and the tips are definately weak. arghhh....I'm hoping we are done by the time he's done teething...hoping!!!!

My girls are all euro. The mom's side is more confo, dad's more working. Gina is definetely my shutzhund prospect. We took her to the puppy match for fun, but she is so very euro and SUCH a busy body, it just isn't her thing. Ramsey takes more after her mom, that's why I'm giving her a go in the confo ring, but I'm going to work her too. That is what I am really interested in, so that is what I'm mainly pursueing. Her bite/grip isn't as good as Gina's, so I'm hoping with lots of practice and work, it will improve. I think she'll be good working dog, but probably never great. Gina on the other hand, I have high hopes for.

Don't let that pic fool you, I really picked the best to share! They are soft on top too, and in the heat they flop The ear process is so long and tedious, but once it's over you never really think about it anymore.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the mom of your boy! She is gorgeous. Dad too of course! I'm really interested in watching Icon grow and seeing how he progresses.

So. Get on the pics woman!

I didn't go last weekend cause I was afraid of driving in the storms when it got dark. Sorry to be a wuss, but I am not fond of driving in bad weather. Dorkbutt and I will try to make it this weekend.
