Tanner's greeting

Join me on my journey as I grow to become part of my pack/family. We'll have a lot of fun along the way! Hopefully, I can make you laugh.

Mommy thinks I will be good at something called Freestyle!  She has been watching videos of other dogs and their Mommies and Daddies doing freestyle and she thinks it would be fun for us to try.

The problem is, our trainer does not do freestyle.  So we have been visiting other trainers in the area that do.

Last Friday evening was our first visit.


I must say, this place was quite a drive for Mommy.  She didn’t really know exactly where she was going, so she put this box on the front of the car and let it talk to her. 


After about an hour of driving, we pulled up a gravel driveway into a nice parking lot in front of this big yellow building.


Other doggies and their Mommies were already there.  And there was a lot of neat looking stuff in the back yard.  But we did not go in there.


Instead, we went into the building.  It was really big inside.  It had fences that moved all over the room.  And a big rubbery rug on the floor.  The other doggies took turns showing off their freestyle routines.  This is Cooper and his Mommy.  Cooper is a Golden Doodle who has a problem with his one hind leg.  But he does not dance like he does.


This is Mary.  She is the nice lady helping the Mommies and Doggies learn to dance.


And this is the banner that their freestyle group uses when it performs.


I did some exercises with the other doggies, but I mostly sat and watched.  The doggie laying in front of me has a bad eye, but she sure can dance too!!


And you should have seen this English Sheep Dog and his Mommy dance.  You would never have know she has a bad knee!!  They sure could cut a rug!


We even got to watch them practice some new tricks!!  Then I showed off a few of mine.  Mommy does not have any shots, because she could not set up the camera the way she does at our class.  But rest assured, I did her proud.

It was a great visit.  We had a wonderful time.  And we are considering going here in the fall.  We have a few more places to check out.  We’ll keep you all posted of our travels and experiences.

Stay cool!

Puppy Kisses,



  1. How cool is that! Can't wait to see some video. :)

  2. That sounds like so much fun! I think there's a place about 45mins from me that does freestyle/HTM (as well as agility, flyball and rally-o!) so when I can drive I'll so be taking Lola to do fun stuff like this! :)

  3. Woof! Woof! Cool n Fun ... Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  4. Wow Tanner,

    You sure do get around! Glad you're getting every opportunity to show off your talents and make lots of new friends along the way - you're a star!

    Your pal Snoopy :)
