    Tyler is a hard working lab (and Petra knows how to bring out the best in him) ........last time I saw them was at the LRC nationals this fall in CT. Had fun hanging out with them and watching them work/play.

    They are fun to watch, aren't they? Tyler is always so happy. I'll never forget the first time we watched them training. We were doing a rally course in the next ring. Caleb totally stopped moving and watched Tyler. I swear he had a look of awe on his face. I run into Petra every once in awhile around town. She is one dedicated person.

    Petra gave a talk at the nationals and used her younger dog as a demo ........... she has so much energy and her dogs respond so well to her approach to training. Looking forward to seeing this young one compete in the future!!

    I haven't seen her new guy since right after she got him. I bet he's come a long way since then! Petra sure does have a lot of energy. She kind of reminds me of a young Lab puppy that way.

    I watched the heeling portion on ytube - the dog looks animated, but frankly , Petra looks like a robot.

    She is a little stiff. But, honestly, she's like that some in real life, too. I think it's just amplified in the ring due to nerves.

    I've seen some heeling work at Crufts before - what the heck is that pattern? Is it something you know beforehand, or does the judge just keep calling out directions? It seemed to go on forever. I also noticed that fact that several people keep running/walking around the ring while the team is working. Seems odd to us used to AKC shows.
