Road trip!

Well, I've been back from my little Florida family vacation for a few days now, but I haven't had a chance to work the dogs at all—I've been totally swamped at work and at home, because I've been preparing to turn around and go away again tomorrow for nine fabulous days. This time, the dogs (well two out of three anyway) will be coming with me because . . . we are going to a Derek Scrimgeour clinic in Wisconsin! Yay! Derek is an internationally renown world-class handler hailing from the UK, and his methods are purported to be gentle yet very effective. I can't wait! I have been looking forward to this five-day clinic since I learned about it in January, and I can't wait to learn more about Derek's techniques and see what he has to say about Taz and Craig. I think I will bring my computer, so I might even be able to post some reports from the field (well, the hotel anyway). Woo hoo!

That sounds like it is going to be a fantastic trip Laura.
I hope that you all have a really good time there and enjoy the experience. I shall look forward to your posts letting us know how you all got on. :-)

Lucky you! I'm a big fan of Derek's methods.
