GLEAM AND TADI AT THE LAKE OF ISEO  June 16th 2018

Gleam 8 weeks pregnant but still wants to exercise, well in her own pace… :-)
As it is rather warm weather we often go to the lake of Iseo. There she loves to swim together with Tadi. Of course she is not anymore a long distance swimmer but she could stroll all day long in the shallow water :-)

 


WT MANTOVA June 3rd 2018
            Judges: John Barr (IRL), Matthew Lambden (IRL), Chicco Argostanza (I), Raffaele Navone (I)

Tadi handled by Guy in Novice Class worked well. They made it up to the run-off against Paolo Guardamagna con Django for 1st and 2nd place. It was an almost invisible marking in the water, the dogs started in the field, crossing a little ditch, a footpath and the shore. First dog to go was Django, he crossed the ditch, the footpath and was searching for the Dummy on the shore and needed some commands until he entered the water. Anyhow he came back with the Dummy. Then it was Tadi’s turn and as he is a clever dog he didn’t jump the ditch instead he took the “chicken way” the passage where he entered the field J and entered the water right away, found the Dummy and on the way back he even jumped the ditch. Well, the judges decided that both dogs made a mistake and therefore there was a 2nd run-off. It was a really long mark in the middle of the field. Needless to say Django did an excellent job on this marked retrieve, instead Tadi had some difficulties finding the Dummy. Therefore Paolo and Django have been the winning team, Guy and Tade ended up 2nd  which was a great success for them.

SUCCESSFUL MATTAPONI’S


Andy Kinta and „Tanner“ worked superb at the CBR weekend WT held at Sandlund Farms /Hampshire UK.
First they competed in Novice Class and continued right away in the Open Class. The winner of BOTH classes was famous Tanner!


Claudio Cazzaniga trains Mave as a water rescue dog. In Italy and France they compete already in the 2nd degree.
At May 12th they competed for the first time in Germany, Westerburg and there they had to begin with the 1st degree.
They ended up very successful 191 out of 200 points, qualification excellent. Congrats to fabulous Mave!

 


DUMMY TRAINING WITH ANDY KINTA (UK) 13th /14th April 2018 AT GHISALBA (BG)

I invited Andy Kinta to initiate us not in a mystery but in working with Dummy’s. We had a great weekend on the marvelous grounds at Ghisalba. A nice group of different Retriever breeds participated. Andy set up very interesting exercises either on land or on / in the water. Not so easy but after two days every dog ended up successfully. I am sure all of us learned something new and took some inputs back home. Thank you Andy for your patience and many thanks to his lovely wife Lynda, she was an untiring Dummy thrower!

We met at 9:30 am and at the same time the mist came down:-( The best we could do in the foggy condition was working on blinds… There was one good thing about it: no over handling, you just had to trust the dogs because they disappeared immediately in the fog… :-) :-) :-)
Many thanks to the Dummy throwers and to Matteo who made those amazing pictures

CAMARGUE January 2018

We spent some wonderful days in the fantastic Camargue / southern France. We have been invited for duck hunting.
It was interesting to see how my Chessies worked together with the flushing dogs, real good team work. Unfortunately on the 2nd day Tadi got bitten in a front paw by a nutria. Unlucky Tadi :-(


In the middle of nowhere the hunting lodge where we stayed


Rather tough grounds


Gleam furthermost attentive


Gleam turned back from a successful retrieve


Last but not least the white horses of the Camargue. Not all of them are white, once in a while you also see a black or a bay one…
