FitDog Friday–Siren’s Back!

Siren’s been gone for about a month with the handler, learning how to be a show dog.  There’s a lot to learn.  A month or two is as long as I like to send any of the dogs, simply because they are family dogs and I don’t want them gone that long, especially when they are young.  They need to be around the kids and the normal household things as well as learning how to stack (stand) and gait (move) properly.

At Brooksville yesterday I dropped off Sassy to the handler as I picked up Siren, who’d been gone since Eukanuba.  She’d gotten bigger of course, and after a second or two of looking at me like, “Who is taking me now?” she warmed up and began happily wiggling her little nub.  I knew she would also be very excited to see Cairo and vice versa.  Here’s how that reunion went:

As you can see, Cairo and Siren usually stay in pretty good shape with all of that running and playing.   They’re both too young for actual runs with the bike yet, but they get great exercise just chasing each other around all day.  How does your dog stay in shape?

    Glad you got your girl back, I have done a little showing but never gave them to a handler (maybe I should of as Glory might have her CH by now 😉 I have given my dogs to a hunt test trainer for the summers and the summers were long ones but I did get to go every weekend and visit them.

    We know lots of dogs go off to “boarding” school for many different reasons, but Mom can’t imagine letting any of us go off for weeks with someone else. She is a bit possessive! I bet you are so happy she is back at home! Hopefully she learned what she needed to!

    She looks happy to be back. Is her training done or is she going back at some point?

      She’ll go back. She has a lot more to learn, plus it gets her used to being with the handler and other people.

    Aww, your pups did seem super excited to be playing together again! Happy indeed 🙂 Our two pups go for daily walks to keep in shape, and they also burn quite a few calories by chasing each other & playing together!

      Yes, lol, they end up burning too many calories! I have had the toughest time with Siren keeping any weight on because she’s always running around like a loon!

    Aww, that’s so great to have her back! Rocco loves to play chase with his Havanese pals! I think that’s his favorite thing of all!

    That is cute. We show and handle our own dogs in shows and you are right, there is a lot to learn!
