Anyway, me, Nettan and the dogs went to my hometown, Borås Friday afternoon. We planned to stay at my mothers place even […]

Our North American tour is a loong one this year. During six weeks we travel around and visit eight different dog training centers in Canada and US. There is now one more week to go and we have a great tour, me and Lilli! I have seminars every day, but if it has been a […]

Stunning insects in North America!

We have had a great tour so far! Yesterday I was quite high, like I was on drugs. I saw my first Praying Mantis! Do you know how cool they are?! I almost could't sleep last night, I was so happy 🙂 They are very impressive and formidable predators, camouflage experts and they can swivel their […]

A nice run

Photo: Fredrik Selander What is the motivation for all us agility-nerds? To stand on the top of the podium at the WC? I think that can be a kind of a goal for many handlers but I don't think that's the real motivation. And for many people it's just not even possible for whatever reason. […]

Little monster

What an interesting find on my walk today! And I love smartphones. They are smart enough to have a camera just when it is needed one! A caterpillar (or maybe better to call it larva because it's the offspring of a moth rather than a butterfly) of Elephant hawkmoth, Deilephila elpenor (Större snabelsvärmare). It's really hughe and it […]

Thoughts about course design

I have already been writing about this in a previous blog post. But I read a discussion about it in facebook and it worth to be posted again. The text is a bit updated and pictures/course maps are added.  In the team agility course on Friday it was a totally stupid entry to the chute. Sometimes […]

Fuck Cancer – Agilitytävling

The text will follow in English! Den 29 augusti anordnar GMBK en "FUCK CANCER"-agilitytävling! Tävlingen är till förmån för föreningen Ung Cancer och jag tycker att det är ett fantastiskt bra initiativ! Det finns alldeles för många i vår närhet som drabbas av cancer och det känns bra att kunna göra något. Tyvärr kan jag inte själv vara med och […]

Road trip 2013 & course design analysis

Our European tour has almost come to it's end. We are on our way home after a three weeks long trip. It almost feels like several months but it has "only" been three weeks… 🙂 The trip started with me and Lilli missing the train to a seminar in Germany. Again I was guessing time […]
