Fall Training Howler is Here!

Our early season fall training "Howler" is here!

We hope you enjoy reading about our puppies: the Coffee Litter and the Golden Harness Litter, as well as some history about the DogLog.

We give you a run down of fall training so far with some great tips on not only improving the fitness of dogs physically but mentally also! We want our dogs to be positive, excited and enthusiastic while they are working. How do we do that?

Wonderful "Howler!!!" Congrats!!!

This may be the very best "Howler" ever!!!

And what a great piece of luck that Olivia and Quito managed to come into season...for the Fall season!!! And thanks for the full view of puppy development.

I'll bet, as you intimate, volunteers come out of the woodwork and perhaps compete for Puppy Duty time!!!

Glad to hear that the 4-legged crew is training in snow/with sleds as well as ATV miles. How about some extra time on treadmills for muscle development (if the dog want to do it, of course)???

Election season is over now, so I am more able to focus on SP Kennel!


P.S. And 3 cheers to Macgellan and Moira for making SP Kennel come alive on the Internet - woof, woof, woof!!!

When you posted the kennel crew last week, Aliy, you stated that your specialty is dogs....and I totally agree. Even more so after reading the five training points in the Howler. And those five points are things that can be kept in mind with our own dogs. I volunteer at my local animal shelter and many times puppies and younger dogs are returned after being adopted because people don't understand that they need to give dogs time to develop and learn. I love the SPK attitude towards the physical and mental development of the awesome athletes That are in your care.

Excellent! And believe it or not - your training points are what miss Maxine & I followed from 6 weeks on.

She'll be 7 Jan 6th 2016, and both of us say I'm the best trained human ever.

LUV my gurldawg - fortunately the feeling's mutual... Nothing is better. Thank you SP.
