Eventful may

Maj has been an eventful month where we have been to a lot of events with our dogs.

Anna went to the yearly meet up for the hungarian breeds at Ljungby dog club. There were many puli och pumi there and a very nice gathering as usual. We were BBQing, trying agility, rally obedience and talked with friendly people. Kafka, Sally and Wilma came along.

Thank you Marianne Nyman for the pictures with Wilma running free and the picture of Anna and Rya.

The same weekend Inger and Janne went to Neumünster, Germany with Edith and Märta. Lotte and Jan also came along with Valle and Nisse. Edith got a german junior CAC. On the way home they all spent some time in Sönderborg in Denmark.

The next weekend it was time to go back to Denmark. Märta got her second CAC at the danish bearded collie clubs specialty in Lyngby.

The 21st and 22nd of may there was a big rally obedience competition in Halmstad. We got some nice nice visitors at our place in Äskilt: Bea and Vera.

We helped out as volonteers at the agility competition, but there were several dogs from Vallklanen competing. Congratulations and well done Malin and Bilbo (Vallklanens Benbecula boy) who got a great result and moved up from level 1 to level 2.

Annelie, Cajsa and Chrille also competed with Vera (Vallklanens Devon Heartbreaker) and Bea (Vallklanens Bright as Daylight).

Thank you Annelie for the nice photos from the agility competition!

In the end of may we went to Tidaholm to the Svk FUR specialty with our puli. It was a really hot day and the dogs were searching for shade.

Edith went best junior bitch and 4th best bitch. Ester was 2nd best bitch and Kafka 2nd best male. A good day in other words! Congratulations to Esters sister Rut who was best in show and to Marianne Nyman and Stefan Ernstsson at Kennel Impeccable who had the best breeders group of the day with Ester, Rut, Traja and Csabo.

May was a hectic month with acitivies every weekend, but we had a lot of fun!

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. 

Kopparhatten, a nice viewpoint in the park:

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 🙂

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!

Happy new year

We celebrated the end of 2015 and beginning of 2016 at home in the forest (as usual). The dogs had a calm evening without fireworks. We started the new year with a long walk in the fog.

It is nice that the snow has finally come. We hope that it will remain cold for a while.

Last week, when it was raining, the dogs came with me to work.

Any turkey left for us?

Kafka has moved to Malmö where he is living with Anna, but they both came home to Äskilt over the weekend. It did not take long before Bjorn and Kafka were out playing with each other. They really enjoy each others company.
