Lately my blog posts have been any less than frequent. That doesn't mean I haven't been busy with all of my upland interests. From training and conditioning the dogs to sorting the gear for the upcoming season, it seems that the tasks are endless. But I've been devoting much of my time to starting a new dog training club. For the past few years I've been lucky enough to associated with a great group of ESS's owners that really want something more for their dogs. The group has slightly expanded and all of the hard work will result in an licensed AKC Performance Dog Club.
The Pawnee Flushing Spaniel Club originally started back in 2007 and we hosted an English Cocker Field Trail under their parent clubs title. Since then it has taken time and effort to get the club going. From the applications to the fundraising, it's not an easy process but in the end it will be well worth it.
This September we are hosting our first events. The first being a two day English Springer Spaniel Field Trial followed by a one day Hunt Test.
There are many reasons for starting this club but it really comes down to the dogs. There was and is need for a club that truly was about the betterment of the breed. Not only do we want to train our dogs but we also want to have a good time doing that.
As the summer progresses we'll be training hard for the fall hunting and trialing season. We're putting Abby through some advance training to keep her sharp. Mia's back training and we're petting extra effort on strengthen her knee.
til next time...
