Fonzie earned his AKC Rally Excellent

March 9, 2017 (18)Starting this February, 2019 Fonzie began competing in AKC Rally Excellent Obedience.  This February at the Syracuse, NY Obedience Club facility he gained his first leg.  By the end of last month (March) he completed the next two legs at the NYS Fairgrounds Exposition Center.  This is his 12th title at 3 years old.


Seeing is believing…

Fonzi’s eyes were examined by a board certified Canine Opthamologist when 8 weeks of age (in March 2016).  At 32 months (Sept 28, 2018) Fonzi’s  OFA eye certification was redone to make sure his eyes are still disease free. We are pleased that he had a Normal/Clear report again.  summertoautumn2016 073

Barn Hunt

With barns still being used to store hay and straw…vermin like the norway rat are starting to move in to stay warm.  It is something farmers deal with….but cats are not the answer to large rodents…which can scare a cat away with one bite.

Farmers with terriers/herding breeds of all sorts/hybrids of prey driven breeds/and any breed that has a good nose and perseverance can have tons of fun in a new sport that has been designed to “train” dogs specifically to the scent of a live rat.

Can your dog search 30 bales of hay in under 3 minutes to find just one caged rat?

If you think so…check out Central Bark Canine Events of Central NY website or facebook page.  …

If you are wanting to train for something your dog LOVES to do….old or young dogs….then barn hunt is for your team!   check it out!062
