Bernese Mountain Dog. Winnie. and Poodle. Grrif. getting acquainted!
Welcome!! This is a journal about my dogs and what we do.
All my dogs have their own websites that you can see by clicking their photo in the sidebar.
This site is a work in progress and has become a source of information. When asked a question I would write a post to answer
it which led to a post to summarize the questions. Check the sidebar for this type of information.
Enjoy the visit and feel free to email me at
Does it have to do with dogs? What the heck? Of course, it has to do with dogs and not something to do with hunting barns!! Check out the website: Barn Hunt Association LLC “The rat hunting game for all dogs!” …huh? RATS??? OK I said… as long as I don’t have to actually hold the rats maybe I should check it out…. after all my dogs will chase and eat anything and so will Winnie! Wait.. I don’t want them eating rats! Well, not to worry.. they don’t EAT them, in fact, they don’t even touch them, they just hunt them… in a hard, HARD PVC tube, and, in fact, they don’t even chase them. They HUNT them in a barn.. BARN HUNT… duh..
Off to the first training… Jake, Brita and Winnie.
Signed up Jake and Brita for the Instinct Test for the upcoming trial.
Second training went much like the first. Put Winnie on hold until after the trial. Brita did the same good searching. Jake was a wild-man. Change the entries to Jake only – Instinct and Novice.
Trial day 5 days later.
ok… We’re hooked and plans are underway for bales of straw and training in the yard!
Thank you Kay for taking the pictures!
