Having two beagles is SOOOOO difficult (for further explanation, see the photo). Unfortunately, we only had Sena for two days, then her human baby-sister got a fever - her people decided to stay at home and they wanted their dog back. I didn't expect her to go home so soon so I didn't make any photos of our walks (I was too busy trying to have both of them under control so I could only photograph them when they were too tired to jump around).
I decided I will try working with Sena and see how it goes. She is very different from Xsara, so I will have to discover a different approach for her, but I think it will be an interesting experience. She is way more shy and kind of insecure so it takes her quite some time to respond sometimes, but she is so happy when she gets it right that it's funny to watch her. I think it would be really good for her to "get it right" on a regular basis and see how her self-esteem rises.
Xsara behaved well with another dog in her house - but then again, Sena is her BFF and sister (from the same pack) so I still don't know how she would adjust to another dog in the house. For now, I'm hoping for the best and when the time is right, we will see.
- Xsara and Tani
- Sava Sara Brakada, AKA Xsara was born on 06-27-2004. She was raised in Kennel Brakada spending the first two months of her life on beautiful countryside Gorenjska (Slovenia) with her siblings and parents. As soon as she came to Ljubljana we started a puppy class, followed by an obedience class. She passed her B-bh exam with 96 points (instructor Agility EO winner Polona Bonač). We now continue with Rally-Obedience under Polona's supervision. Our biggest passion however is Agility. We started our first Agility class in October 2005 (club Agility Ilirija, instructor Silvia Trkman, two times agility world champion). When Silvia stopped teaching agility classes, we switched to Daša Zakotnik. We regularly participate in Agility trials in Slovenia and sometimes abroad. Xsara also loves to learn new dog tricks, you can see some of them in our videos. Her other passions include long walks, big meals and playing with dogs, specially her pyr shep sister Tani, her crazy agility pals and her sister Sena.
