well i don´t know what to say, this guy im training with says that they want to keep it all about gss, no other people training with them, and on the other hand he tells me that i could participate trainings if i have young malinois or border collie.. this other guy also from gss that just got a young border collie says that it is stupid why i cant train if Balto is doing great
he will start training with us soon, so i will see how trainings will be in next few months, but if nothing happens till summer im gonna make a pause or even quit trainings :(
I keep fingers crossed that it will work out well!

Ha crazy border collie...I like to watch her, she really is good for that age.

I made a short video of some Tana's training: search for microlocation (is very useful, dog learns to find the exact location of a smell) and some obedience (competitive heeling)...
