Jenny and Copper earned their 2nd Rally Novice leg
In the Land O' Lakes Dog Show at the River Centre, (on January 3) Jenny competed in Rally-Obedience with our Basset Hound, Copper. They earned a score of 98 (out of 100) and tied for first place... The final placement was then determined by the course run time, and they got 2nd place (out of 13 teams).
Tip of the Month
Get your puppies Temperament-Tested
We use the Volhard Puppy Aptitude Test (PAT) to determine the puppy's Temperament (or personality) in order to aid in choosing the right puppy for the right home. This is not a guarantee of how they will turn out, as life learning/experiences, training, and socialization can alter their behavior, but it does give you a good idea of what to expect and which areas you'll need to focus on. Every puppy has a purpose, and people get dogs for different reasons... This testing can help you choose which puppy is most suitable for your family and your needs.
The PAT is best given to the puppies individually, by a stranger, in an unfamiliar environment at the age of 49 days (7 weeks). If you would like to learn more about the PAT, please visit the website; http://www.volhard.com/pages/pat.php
We charge $55/Hour (plus a travel fee, if applicable) for this service. We recommend allowing one hour per 4-5 puppies. After the testing is done, we can discuss the results with you and try to help you determine which puppy might be the best match. We will then write up a summary of the results and send them to you via e-mail (or mail) within a couple days.
Please contact us to schedule your testing!
