Things are busy here at WCDT Headquarters! Today, I presented at The Space Science Institute Speaker Series, and this week, I’ll continue to purchase supplies for my first Mission Wolf expedition mid September. Seeing as though I will be up in 9,300 feet elevation, I’ll start off sleeping in my North Face Cat’s Meow bag, but will switch to another Mountain Hardware bag once the weather gets colder in November. Along with a stove, bear proof containers, first aid kit, food, water and wood, I’ll be bringing along a journal to document my travels and will be posting them here exclusively for you on Speak! In the meantime, I’ll continue to hike with the dogs to prepare for our Trail Ready Course on the October 7th. As I hike, I’m developing some wonderful new techniques for dogs and their owners who hit the trails. I’m also finding new hikes for our class participants that will meet the challenge of every canine. The natural architecture of Colorado provides a perfect backdrop for all sorts of things. From survival techniques to agility training over many different obstacles, endurance training, etc. this will be well worth the money for any outdoor enthusiast. I’m looking forward to teaching it!
My dogs love being out here at The K-9 Ranch, and it will be fun to see them play in the snow this winter. Elvis (my young male) is promising to be a spectacular dog. Next spring or summer will be time to get a beautiful female for breeding. The pups should be unbelievable as Elvis’ grandfather is the Three-time World Seiger – Yasko. The female will be a big investment from two of the top dogs in the world. Most importantly, this litter will (from the get-go) have primary top behavioral care. My focus on this line is beauty but more importantly, temperament starting at the neonatal phase of birth.
All preventative measures will be in place for any future behavioral problems as well as focus on socialization, sound, smell, sight awareness / development and puppy imprinting. Interested in one of these dogs? Sign up for our e-newsletter The Dog Dish to get first dibs on the litter when the female is picked out…
