Level up

Last weekend we were out with the camper and the dogs. That saturday we went to Markaryd and a rally obedience competition where Märta did a really good round with 89 points (out of 100).

The weather was beautiful last week and we went to visit Lotte and Jan, Valle and Nisse in Klippan. On the sunday we did an excursion to the national park of Söderåsen. Anna also came with Kafka and Ester so we had 8 dogs with us and got some attention from other hikers.

On the monday our tour continued to Höör where Märta and I competed in rally obedience again. This time she got 96 points and came in second place!

Afterwards we went for a nice walk in the forest among the spring flowers:

Today was the third time Märta got good points in a rally obedience competition, with 94 points we came in 4th place. This also means that Märta has gotten her first title (RLD N) and will move up from the beginners level to the next level. We are on a roll 🙂

Congrats to the three year olds

A big congratulations to Dennis, Sigge, Imla, Bilbo, Lewis, Elsa, Totiki, Mållgan, Doris ,Bella and Edda who are turning 3 years old today!

We hope that you are all doing great. We have wonderful memories from this litter.

Elsa has “celebrated” her birthday by mating with a handsome boy. Now we are keeping our fingers crossed that we will have puppies at Vallklanen this summer ❤

Sally 10 years old

Today is Sally’s 10th birthday. She is a beautiful and wise bitch. She has followed me to work and brought a lot of joy to the elderly, she has made it all the way to the master level in rally obedience and she has also competed in the first and second level of traditional obedience. Throught the years she has gotten three litters of puppies and she is an international champion. We hope that we will get many more happy years with her. To us she is very special ❤

Märta’s debut in rally obedience

Yesterday Märta had her debut in a rally obedience competition. The result in points was not too great (63 out of a 100), but we are still happy with the day. We had fun and Märta had a very positive attitude. I’m sure we will do better at the next competition.

The other dogs also got a chance to have some fun and practice some rally obedience.

Elsa is in season

Since the last time we wrote in out blog Elsa (CH Vallklanens Armadale Gal) has done a behaviour and pesonality description through the Swedish Kennelclub. She has also gotten a final Cacib to become an international champion. Now we are just waiting for the confirmation from the FCI. She has just now come in season and we are hoping that she will have puppies this summer. We will soon post some more information on our puppies page.

We have spent the easter weekend with our family and the dogs.

Hugo and Oliver played and also cuddled with the dogs:

Lotte and Jan came to visit and brought Valle (CH Vallklanens Old Ben Lomond) and Nisse (Vallklanens Sgt Pepper):

We took the opportunity to take some new photos of Edith who is now 8 months old and Märta who is a year and half:

We hope that you all had a happy easter!

Update

Where did the past few months go? I think we need a bit of an update here!

We’ve said goodbye to both Piaf and Hygge. Piaf is now called Licorice (Vallklanens Sweet Licorice) and lives in Germany with a breeder who also has bearded collies. We are really happy for that! Hygge travelled to Devon, England, where he is also doing well!

In the beginning the house felt very empty without the puppies, but now Edith makes sure to keep us occupied.

We have been to a couple of shows. One in Hannover, Germany and one in Gothenburg, Sweden. Our dogs have done well. Märta was 4th best bitch at MyDog in Gothenburg. She was also crufts qualified because she won the junior class.

The dogs have taken turns to come with me to work. Even Edith has come to say hello to the elderly who live at the nursing home.

Ester and Kafka are living with Anna most of the time. We have finally finished building the new dog yard, where the dogs can hang out when Anna goes to work.  screen-shot-2017-01-17-at-17-05-38

It is not very far to the beach from Anna’s house, so the dogs get to go on a lot of beach walks.screen-shot-2017-01-17-at-17-05-59 screen-shot-2017-01-17-at-17-05-02 15624401_1808158746099278_1017964771648995328_n-copy

Märta, the helper

The past few days Märta has come to the realization that the puppies are a lot of fun! She visits them all the time and helps out to keep them clean, to cuddle them and to play with them.

Time to celebrate!

Today we are travelling home from Gotland. We have been here on a vacation for a week, ending with 2 dog shows in Visby. After the results from the show we really have reason to celebrate!

We also want to once again say congratulations to Hjördis (Vallklanens Devon Country Girl), Kafkas sister, who became a swedish and norwegian champion last weeken din Ransäter. She was also best of breed with 16 pulis competing. Well done Jenny and Hjördis!

Vallklanen-meet

On sunday we had a Vallklanen gathering in Ljungby. It was a lovely group of people and dogs that came and we got some time to BBQ, practice rally obedience and agility and just hang out and talk. 25 dogs were there with their owners. A big thank you to everyone who came!
