Sawyer and I had another disc trial yesterday. She was so fantastic! We placed 3rd in Mini toss & fetch, and 2nd in Mini distance. 
Obviously I still cannot throw and shoot at the same time, so after the trial was over, we took advantage of the nice weather and I had my friend throw a couple of discs on the grass right beside the barn so I could snap a few shots.
I can’t wait till the grass gets green again!

Fromm

Anyone have their dog on Fromm? Any thoughts on the food? Good or bad experience please?

Sawyer wanted to have some fun in between demos at the Erin fall fair.

Day 9: Your Current Corgi(s)

Sawyer is my only and current corgi. This is a photo of her from yesterday at Woofstock sporting Sony’s Action Cam dog mount.. If we don’t win one, I’m totally going to buy one (the mount, that is). Here’s hoping it fits the Go Pro!

Day 8: Corgi Kisses!

Sawyer isn’t much of a kisser, so I took advantage of her when she was really sleepy last night and gave her a kiss!

Look at Sawyer in the great outdoors! It’s pretty fitting that Sawyer is competing to win Earth Rated’s Great Outdoors Photo Contest. 
If you haven’t had an opportunity yet, please VOTE for Sawyer. She would love to win free poop bags for a year and some other awesome puppy gear.. but mostly the poop bags. AND we’ve already planned a trip to California and a few other places to come pick up poop for everyone that has already voted!
Corg on Corgis.

I had a few people ask about a video from the disc trial. Unfortunately I didn’t think to take one.. (I promise I’ll get one next month)

But here is Sawyer and I practicing in the backyard.

ESBC Week 3: Blanket Roll
The above gif should say it all. Your dog has to roll themselves (burrito style) into a blanket. This one might require teaching more than 1 command depending on how you tackle it.
Videos:
How to do a Blanket Roll - Owner Video 
Pig in a Blanket Video (More of a Demo video, but comments have some helpful tips)
Dog 101 Book - Page 1 | Page 2
If you run into trouble - post or ask a question on Tumblr! If we can’t help, someone out there will know!
Tips: Remember to keep training sessions short (no longer than 15 minutes) and fun! This is play for everyone.
How You Can Show Off on Sunday:
If you have Tumblr, and are going to upload to your blog. Please use the tag: ESBC . We have been liking and reblogging all the posts using that particular tag and will continue to do so through-out the challenge.

(Edit: If you know of another video or helpful link - let me know! This one was a little hard to find resources on.)

Good luck guys, this one’s going to be tough.
