We wish all a Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Just last saturday, 8 November, i went to view a 2years old border collie, who is up for adoption. She’s very small in size for a border collie but has a very sweet temperament with human but relatively shy towards dogs. Personally, what i like to do after i adopt a dog is to bring them out the whole day, and head back home late night, so they will knock out once they are at their new place and not pacing up and down. So i brought Junior, the newly adopted dog along with Hyper, Ugly ( our yellow sided conure), Xiao Hei (our 1 out of 5 guinea pigs) to Pets Stations warehouse sale for all our pets’ stuff back home! Just so you know, we have 2 dogs (including Junior), 1 small parrot, 5 guinea pigs. Freeze dried salmon/tuna treats are sold at 3 packs for $8, usual price will be $8.50 for 1 pack! great deal!
After our crazy shopping at woodlands we went down to pasir ris, downtown east. For PETAS 2014, a pet event, whereby alot dog owners and trainer will be there for competition and also to visit the booth for some free goodies! As we know Junior is bit shy towards dogs, and doesnt do well with face-to-face greeting with other dogs, we have to plan our walk route. Avoid the crowded area and always keep an eye on Junior, when she give any calming signal or stress, we will walk to a area where there’s no dogs near and have a time out.
We didnt stopped after the Pet event, after which, we send the animals for grooming. As for Junior, she needs a bath badly, as she was quite neglected back home and smelled really awful! just imagine, we drove around with the window wind down, cause the car smell the moment she jump in! After a nice bath for our pets. We went to meet up with a group of friends of mine and chill for the next few hours.
Home sweet home! Both the dogs were drained out, to help Junior to calm down in the house. I leashed her to my window and within 10mins, she’s in her lala land 🙂 tired dog = happy dog 🙂
Till now, we have Junior for about 1 week, hasnt starts any form of training yet, just focusing on recall outdoor. Hopefully you will be able to see her in the agility ring soon 🙂
We have started out first class for our Jumper class, for both competition and leisure 🙂
If you’re not into the whole dog competition but just want to enhance the bond and communication between you and your dog. This class will be suitable for you!
As some of us know about how precise in our movement from our hand signal to feet placement to body direction in order to be able have a clear body cue to our dog.
In our jumper class, we do not encourage any vocal cue. We are working on just body cue (as much as we can).
All this might sounds abit too much to digest and do, no worry, our class are all for beginner so we will be doing it by baby step 🙂 and of course we do have more advance class for other.

We are pleased to announce Hyper took part in recent SKC jumper trial and achieved 2nd placing with Q 🙂 This is our 2nd time taking part in a Jumper trial and we are very lucky to get a placing.
Here’s the video taken on the day of trailing.
We will work hard in our future trials 🙂
Last month, we took part in 48th jumper trial organized by Singapore kennel club.
We were very excited as this is our very first trial on jumper. Although our last training with tunnels and tyre jumps were 4 years back, and only train hyper on hurdles and focus also body signals.
Overall, I felt that we did a good job as a team! He got 4th placing which earns him a ‘Q’ , 2 more ‘Q’ and he will be going from novice to open trial.
There’s a few obstacles we had before the trial. The trial requires to handle the dog on the right side (hyper have only being train to be on the left). Sending him away from the right is abit tricky. More guidance will be needed during the trial.
During the trial, hyper did a wonderful job on tagging along on the right and able to follow well, although there’s once after he came out of the tunnel he dash to my left and nearly jump over the hurdler which could lead us to be disqualified.
Recently, we took part in a obedience challenge at a recent pet event, organize by club pets magazine.
The event took place over 3 days at scape. As one of the ambassador of club pets magazine, CoCo, a Pomeranian turns 2.
While busy going around visit booth and taking some goodies. We took part in the challenge.
In the challenge, Round 1, we have to cue our dogs to sit / down, and a lady will walk pass every dog and drop a treat in front, we only can use vocal cue to ask our dog to leave it, any leash tightly will cause them to be disqualified.
Then we came to the final round, which me and another 2 got in. We we were asked to get the dog to lie down behind us. Totally no eye contact with the dog, just purely voice cue.
And I’m very happy that my dog, hyper, was the only one able to leave the treat and not eat it (behind my back) . I was told that he actually smell the treat, then when he heard my cue, he put his head down on the floor and resisting it. So eventually, we won the challenge.
Great job there hyper 🙂
Having a calm, clear mind when working with your dog is an essential—but often overlooked—aspect of successful training. This is especially important when you have a sensitive dog who either gets nervous or aggressive around stimuli. Dogs can sense our energy, and sometimes that can be the factor that determines our dogs’ ability to listen to us. If you’re angry, upset, or frustrated, your dog can read your body language and they quickly learn to avoid you when you’re angry. Your tension can also add more stress to your dog, which can increase hyperactivity, anxiety, or aggression.
I work with dogs with behavioral problems on a daily basis, so it’s important for me to surround myself with positive energy to prevent any stressors taking over. I cannot train dogs if I’m not in a calm and relaxed state. I also make it a point never to displace any bad energy…

Toro, the 7 months old, west highland white terrier had gone through 4 sessions with us, and will be graduating in 2 more sessions 🙂
Toro have being learning some basic obedience with Sit, Down, Stay, stand, touch and more importantly door manners, for safety purposes to avoid them from dashing out the door when the door open. Today, we taught him standing up on a stool and off on cue, like any puppy, Toro got the hang of it very fast 🙂
