Today has been a doggy day. I have as a goal to compete with my youngest dog Speja in something that we in swedish call ”Bruks” with special brach of search.
To do this the dog has to do a mental description. I have no idea if there is an english term for it, but if you want to read about it in English I found this page that describes it: http://www.lapphund.nu/mheng.htm
In short it is 10 parts where the dog is put in different situations and you look at how the dog reacts. For example if she wants to greet and play with unknown people, how she reacts if an overall all of a sudden appears in front of her in the woods.
It went good, my Speja was very brave and did not have any lingering fears.
If you want to see some of what she did you find it here:
