Toni didn't like to be at shows, so we
went only a couple of times. Best result was CC and third best dog.
We trained obedience with the local club quite many years, but Toni was not able
to concentrate when there were other dogs around so later we trained by
ourselves and just for our own pleasure.
We took a short course and trained about one year, but stopped it because Toni
was too interested in other dogs and run from the track every now and then. Toni
also had bad hips, so I gave up.
We learned tracking mainly with goodies. We also tried to learn to find
mushrooms, but Toni was more interested in the other smells in the forests.
Balls were Toni's favourite toys, but he wouldn't hold rubber ones, nor any
other rubber toys.
In the summer Toni liked to swim.
