Sept. & Oct. 2012
Internat. Dog Show Tulln & Breeding Approval.
At the show we were not as sucessfull as we are at sportive dog competitions. Nevertheless
went to this show.
Fozzy and April got the mark "very goodt", Xano "good" (after a long discussion!!!!) and we got the clever tipp to show this dog in a working class! Thanks for that, we would have done it, because nearly all of our dogs, also Xano has the herding examination HWT (Herding Working Test), which you need for entering the working class - IF the dog is a workingdog, but unfortunately the Beardie IS NOT!
Bella got her special breeding approvement till Oct. 2014!.
3rd success of April in one month!
April (aged 14 months) was able to reach 2nd place at a herding Trial Traditional Style-1 in Czech Rep., Martinkovice. 8 dogs were competing against each other in this class. April got the mark "excellent" and the permission to start in Trial class 2!
judge: Phillipe Heinz, Frankreich.
April passed her first Obedience examination!
Our little Sweety has again done some great work! Aged only 14 1/2 months she did her first obedience examination "Beginners" mark "excellent". Now she is allowed to compete in the next higher Obedience level (GH-1)!
AISLINN did a good job!
Well done! Aislinn, from our 1st litter, showed at her BH examination a lovely work! Congrtulation to you and we hope you continue this great work!
April was successful at the international dog-show in Oberwart!
We showed April & Bella at the international dog show in Oberwart (Austria). Both girls got the mark "excellent" - our little April reached even "V-1" and the title "best young dog"

2012-07-07 + 08: VIDEO CLIPS are ONLINE!!!
Great sucess for our Beardies - especially for little April!!!
lovely landscape in Martinkovice.
Though it was very hot April showed two wunderful runs: Saturday she did the HWT (Herding working test) so she was allowed to start on Sunday at TS-1 - her first trial - and she really did pretty well - nice distance to the sheep and took the commands easily. It was a very smooth run, though she did not get a high score, for me it was really ok - but look by your self:
TS-2 -Fuchur und Bella.
Bella had very fast sheep. Though she did her best to keep her with me (or bring them back every now and then) it was of course not a calm run, she qualified, but was not as successfull as Fuchur, who got the 2nd place with this run;:
Fuchur: auch er konnte grlßtenteils seine Trainingserfolge umsetzen
Class TS-3 war Jula - last place! Think it was not to bad, but she did a bad mistake before re-penning the sheep, and that´s to bad for class 3 and she lost to much points!
2012-06-30: WELL DONE!!! A big success for our Beardies!!!
Though we had 36° C, our dogs showed some good work! Little April did the examination "BH" (obedience low class & mentaltest for everyday life) superior!
And her Mom Bella, showed also some awful work: Obedience examination (Beginner), mark "excellent".
Both girls are have qulified to train for the next higher level, April for Obedience-Beginner-Class and Bella Obedience class GH-1!
short after the reward: jump and play in the little ditch behind the dog-school!!!
Congratulation!!! FOZZY has shown an excellent work at his 1st Obedience examinaion (BH)!
He ist the first dog of our litter "A", who has done the test, aged only 1 year and 3 days old!!! Thogh many others will follow soon!
So Petra & Fozzy, we are so proud of you!!! And hope you keep up those good work!
Fozzy: concentrated heelwork, and also no problem in with the "down"-position!
...at the same day, some "few" km away:

Unfortunately the last 2 year we had not enough time and stopped Agility completely, but that Bella did not forget a bit, showed her result on her first run in Böheimkirchen: class A-1, out of
24 competitors: she got 2nd - mark "excellent"
judge: Margot Fischer, Austria.
We are very proud of our girl! She is not only a reliable herding dog, but also a good Agility dog! "click"
Bella: nur fliegen ist schöner!!!

...XANO AND OUR GIRLS AT A TRAINING IN HUNGARY...
we had an awful good time at the training in Hungary - lovely open countryside and the dogs did really a good job - the first 3 photos over there:
Xano, normally you would say, he could not go a single step slow, but as soon as it comes to work he walks concentrated and slowly and takes every command easy:
...and here a photo of Mom and daughter:
Bella keeps her distance and moves the sheep gently:
...and also our little black April is very keen on sheep, but works calm and concentrated, too:

...HERDING TRAINIG IN HUNGARY - canceled
because the temperatur in Hungary was approx. minus 20 degrees Celsius, we decided to stay at home. But that does not mean, that we and our dogs were not busy!
Though it was bitterly cold, some Beardie owners came for the training.
it does not matter what - he likes everything: XANO
On Saturday we practiced heel work as well as we worked the sheep, on Sunday we also went out with the flock. Unfortunately we haven't photos of all dogs, but we want to share a few with you!
We also made a short video clip - this time with our puppy April. Though she is only 7 months old, she is very calm and concentrated for her age!
Also heel-work can be fun!!!
Our Beardies proved that once more:
two sisters from our litter "A": AISLINN & APRIL - we give it soon a start...
XANO - always eager and full of spirit an life!
...also BUDDY and Birgit are a great team!

...BIT OF OBEDIENCE
Yesterday we practiced a little bit of obedience with Bella, Jula & April. We also tried for the first time to work Bella and Jula next to each other! Look at the video clips under the photo to find out, if the girls had as much fun as we had!
APRIL - how she developes in body and sheep herding
our little April (7 months old) is a very lovely and promising Beardie girl:
April shows a very nice ability to handle the flock - of course often she is to fast, but she is also able to movethe sheep very slow, concentrated and gentle:
APRIL: I don´t care about nothing - not even llamas can disturb me!!!
April and her mother Bella:
...and our three lovely girls together: Bella, April & Jula:
Let´s climb up the highest hill!
