I'm back for 2020!
This is an ODO tradition for me to start a thread where everyone can list their goals for their dogs for the coming year. It can be show/performance, training or health ... anything you plan to achieve with your dogs next year!!
This was last year's post so you can refresh your memories!
Here were my 2019 Goals.
Doozy will do conformation, working towards AKC Champion and is training to be my next service dog. May also do FastCAT. A few more points towards AKC CH, but not titled. Didn't get around to doing FastCAT either. She did do some winning in the AKC Owner Handled Groups which we are excited about, and moved up in breed rankings.
Spud is going to attempt BarnHunt as available. Spud earned her Barn Hunt Instinct title
OE will hopefully get her next level FastCAT title. Time didn't allow for any FastCATs but OE took on another job later in the year of raising a new puppy for me!!
Grytz is semi retired in conformation but will come out for fun while working towards her Bronze Grand Champion title. Maybe some K9 Parkour too if I get around to it. Some more points in AKC towards GCHB and nice BOB wins over hairless dogs. Otherwise, mostly service dog stuff, as I spent much of 2019 in the dental chair and she was there for every visit.
Things have gotten interesting at the Trademarkbark Household. We have a new puppy - a male, hairless AHT, which goes against my Coated Girls only rule. His name is Mr Spock and he's a smart little guy. His first show out (a fun match) he won Best Puppy In Match.
Mr Spock - keep on showing and hopefully earn AKC and UKC Champion (or close to it).
Doozy - keep plugging along at AKC conformation when I have time. Also will attempt Barn Hunt as I think she will enjoy it.
Spud - run the household like the bitch she is! Mostly playing mom and mentor to the new puppy, but otherwise, she's retired.
OE - starting to show signs of arthritis in her shoulder, so her running career may be over. She's been doing a great job of disciplining the puppy.
Grytz - keep working towards the Bronze GCH as time and finances allow.
