In which we show how Vallhunds can have Brains AND Beauty !
August was a lovely sunny month weather wise for walks on the wild side. Loki, Tilly & Freki pup visited Norfolk for further Herding Training with Sarah Jenkins.
Tilly is more confident, Freki is being worked with minimal interference while her puppy brain absorbs what is effective with sheep & what isn't. Loki did really well in a 6 acre field gathering 50 sheep, flanking & fetching them to me, & even penning them. Really nothing makes him as chilled & content as herding livestock!
Freki pup went to Driffield Champ Show with her brother Barley, where he won PD, Freki then won PB, & then Best Puppy!
Her last Show as a Puppy was Leicester Open Show - no Breed Classes, but she was 1st in the AVNSC Pastoral Puppy Class, Best AVNSC Puppy, & then won Group One in a well attended Pastoral Puppy Group!
Freki says she still much prefers Herding & Walkies to Showing,but it was a lovely way to end her Puppy Show Career !
