Wilder’s AMCA Working Team Dog certificate arrived in the mail today! Yay!! Wilder earned his WTD title during our sledding holiday in Lapland in April and continues to impress us with his enormous working drive and focus. He exhibits a mature calmness beyond his years and has tons of leading potential. We look forward to developing his skills during this winter’s adventures, as Wilder will be two years old in January he’ll be ready to embark on some longer trips. I’m already looking at maps and planning away, can’t wait!
We visited our dog club today with Gemma, Titan, Wilder and Hilary to train agility at Åbyn-Byske Brukshundklubb’s new outdoor training area. We’ve had a long break from agility during summer as it’s been too hot to do anything strenuous, but now that autumn is here we plan to continue our weekly training sessions at home and at the dog club. Agility (and rally obedience) is a great complement to exercise in harness as it provides that extra mental stimulation that most Malamutes need. It also improves their coordination, strengthens muscles, increases endurance and helps boost their overall confidence. There are many reasons to train agility with your dog and above all, it’s fun!
Below is a short clip of Fredrik and Wilder from today. Wilder is getting soo good at agility! He is fast, accurate and simply LOVES this game!
