Mika’s board and train


Update on Mika (Alta-Tollhaus Michigan) Mika is now ten weeks old and weighs 15lbs. We love her so much. She truly is a wonderful puppy. We do a lot of little training sessions throughout the day, and Mika has been working for most of her food. She LOVES playing ball and chasing her toys around! The following pictures are from the week we went out of town and boarded her with our friends at Valor k9 in Spokane. The following photos are all taken by Valor k9 Academy, captions as well. See their Facebook or Instagram for more.




“Took Mika on a field trip today! This little girl is a peach. Such a fun, confident pup. She handled all the new people, places, sights, sounds and surfaces beautifully. A testament to great genetics and breeding!”


“Mika exploring”




“A little focus work”


“Hey, why didn’t that hooman stop and say hi to me?” 😂 About 5 people after this stopped to say hi. She loves everyone! 😜


“Confident on an elevated surface”




“She saw her reflection and didn’t mind one bit. She knows she’s cute!”


“Mika’s mom got the best patch ever for her harness!”


“All done. 20 minutes. So much great exposure. Success!!”

Ziva at the Alaskan Malamute Agility trial

We were having company over labor day weekend, but I managed to sneak a day in on Friday to play agility.  Ziva had a Q and 3rd placement in Master Standard behind 2 MACH dogs that are now showing in preferred and a GREAT Jumpers run.  Unfortunately I sent her over the wrong jump, so no double Q 🙁  She is always so consistent, but my nerves get in the way, so I need to get my act together to complement her good work.


Sent her over the wrong jump so no Q

Aiden at the EESSC Agility Trial – day 2

Today we were back at the Eastern English Springer Spaniel Agility Trial for our second day.

Aiden’s first run of the day was Time to Beat. He was very excited as usual and decided to add an off course jump. He had a fast run, with lots of positives in it, but unfortunately the off-course meant he did not qualify.

Next class of the day was Master Standard Preferred. As you can see he is NOT much calmer and took off like he had been shot out of a cannon! He had a great run, avoided several traps and qualified with 25 PACH points and 2nd place. The 1st place dog, who is also a GSD, beat Aiden for 1st place by five hundredths of a second! There were three GSD’s in the class and all qualified.


Aiden’s last class of the weekend was Masters Jumpers with Weaves Preferred. Aiden had a super run and qualified with 21 PACH points and 1st place for his first PACH Double Q!!! Funnily enough the GSD who beat Aiden in Standard came in second to Aiden this time.


Jack, Aiden and I had a great weekend. It was great to be back at agility. The most important thing is Aiden had fun…. but it is also pretty cool that he qualified in 4 out of 6 runs, got a Double Q and earned a total of 62 PACH points.
