Introducing Jackson's co-star, Jolee

Ch Robindanes She's So Fine CD CGC aka "Jolee"

Now that Jackson has achieved his quest, I guess it's time to shift the focus a bit and include his littermate - Jolee - on this blog. I've periodically mentioned her in posts and featured her in a couple videos, however not everyone has met her. (We are now a two-Dane family so there won't be any more surprises.)

Jolee is six years old and spent her early years in the conformation ring, thus obedience training was kind of an after-thought with her. I did start some obedience training with her a couple years ago and then rushed her into the ring to get a CD (companion dog) title on her so she would have a title at both ends of her name : )

So, what are my goals in training with two six-year-old (almost seven-year-old) Danes? Not sure, but I think this next year I am going to focus on continuing obedience training with both of them to help keep them mentally and physically challenged. I don't have any obedience title goals in mind at this point, but want to continue learning from training them; try new training methods; and improve and expand my training knowledge and skills.

And, as soon as the weather breaks - we're going to get back into tracking.

Stay tuned : )

Nice to meet you, Jolee!! Can't wait to see what you get up to - really nice to have another "senior girl" doing training to compare notes with!! :-)

Slobbers,

Looking forward to hearing what training goals you develop. That's been a goal of mine since the fall and starting the third month into the year I haven't put it down on "paper" yet. We're just venturing into the obedience world in the last year or so and look forward to the learning. Can't wait to hear Jolee's story (love her name!) and the continued adventures of Jackson, too.
