Classes!

Today I went to an orientation at my local dog training facility and completely love it! The owner is a sweet heart and seems to really like borzois— Bandit will be the first Zoi at that location. Not for long though! I spread the word as soon as I got home and now we’ve got a whole gang of local borzois who will be taking classes there.

On Friday, Bandit is going in to be evaluated by a trainer. We may be able to skip obedience 1 if all goes well. When they were telling me the things they teach in obedience 1, I was like “hmm bandit pretty much knows all of those things,” but who knows. Maybe the trainer can help us tighten up these skills.

Tonight we’re going to a conformation class. Bandit has already been to one back in Michigan but it’ll be my first time. Some of of his other borzoi friends will be there too :)

"Why am I standing like this again?"

Usually when I do monthly stacking of Bandit, my boyfriend takes the photo while I do the stacking. This time I was alone and mister Bandito would not stop wiggling and shifting his weight! Silly boy.

Racing!

I haven’t written an update in a while!

Things are getting a lot better with the nail care. Bandit no longer screams bloody murder, but he still fidgets and pulls. For the most part, I’ve been doing it while he’s sleeping, and this way I can usually get 3-4 nails per day.

We’re taking him to his first LGRA (large gazehound racing association) event this weekend for some practicing! I have to find him a basket muzzle before then, but we’re really excited to get started. He has a super strong drive and I’m hopeful for a great career in lure sports :)

Then Sunday is beach day! I’ll have lots of fun pictures to share next week.

Recall practice! He’s pretty wonderful off lead— even with all the distractions at the dog park, he regularly runs back to us for a few pets, then off to play again.

Bandit is hard at work, customizing his blog ;)On the floor, we see remains of this morning’s “kill.” The plastic bag that was attached to the lunge whip.
