      Off to Camp!

      After a year of waiting, we're finally off to Fenzi Dog Sport Academy (FDSA) training camp today! We've taken over the Linn County Fair & Expo Center and several trainers are there to teach everything from Obedience to Agility to Nosework and even dog photography. We have several performance dog behaviorists and even a human therapist to help people with things like ring nerves.

      Luckily it is held this year just an hour or so south of me in the small town of Albany, Oregon, so I was able to get a working spot. It's going to be a super busy and fun few days for us, and we'll be working with some talented trainers from all over the country on our Obedience game. I'll be geeking out on dog training with a few hundred like-minded dog owners, trainers and handlers from around the world -- yep, several international attendees (including one from New Zealand!) -- and we'll be in the company of about 100 dogs with working spots. Every night is a BBQ, pizza party or some other social event, and we wrap things up with a mock trial on Sunday. Heaven!

      The town is pretty excited to see us and attendees arriving early have posted photos of some of the sign boards welcoming us, like the one below. Who doesn't love dogs, right??? Even some of the restaurants have added extra outdoor, dog friendly seating, to make sure they get a bigger piece of the pie this week. I think it's safe to say, Albany, Oregon will be the most dog friendly town in America, for the next few days anyway.
