    Mary Lynn, Long Point area has been blessed with no snow up to today. Have been training on excellent grounds on a regular basis. Train most afternoons and morning and afternoon on Saturday. If we have the winter we had last winter, this could continue for most of the winter. Give us a call.
    Storm predicted today for south western ontario, Will have to wait and see if this one misses us also.

    In my neck of the sub-Arctic, we call severe winter training "hunting" - field trial dogs and/or otherwise











    Just something to think about for advancing your "training."

    I should have kept my big mouth shut. The storm hit last night and all my green is now white. The most snow I have seen in 10 years. Gracie is having a ball while I am out working trying to clear my deck and drive. It is like she is saying," it is about time I get to watch you work....how does that collar work!". I hope she knows that you only use it for lack of effort!
