When it’s hot, it’s hot. But that doesn’t stop dogs from having a great time! Two weeks ago, Ohio Air Dogs held their summertime Member Appreciation Day! The day was filled with Frisbee, rally, agility and lots of bowls of water! Despite the incredible heat that day, the dogs did an amazing job at all of the events! Here are some highlights!

This post is extra special to me because my little dog has graduated from Puppy Kindergarten! If you follow me on Facebook, you have heard me talk about my new Blue Merle Border Collie puppy, Makai. He even has his own Facebook Page! Well, Makai is four months old now and he and his litter mater brother, Pierce, have graduated obedience training! Two other awesome puppies joined them in a fun graduation day! This is Ohio Air Dogs’ week 6 class from 6/14/12. If you would like to enjoy the entire gallery or purchase prints, please visit my website under “Clients.” Thank you! WOOF!

This past Sunday, 6/10/12, I checked out Ohio Air Dog’s Basic Obedience Level 1, week 6 class. Only one dog was in attendance so she got loves of love from my camera!
Meet Joy. She’s a strikingly gorgeous Siberian Husky rescue. I couldn’t get enough of her. Such a sweetheart!
There were two great dogs in the Basic Obedience week 6 class at Ohio Air Dogs on 5/22/12. They were so fun to watch because they did so good! My favorite is when families incorporate their children into the dog training process. It’s so important for children to understand proper dog handling and obedience skills.

Things are looking up at Ohio Air Dogs! They have moved to a great new location and I now can shoot from a second story down onto the course! It’s very cool! Enjoy the Agility 3 week 5 from 4/30/12.

First enjoy a little “Cat Art.” This is Boomer, a Cattle Dog.
And when a dog needs a break… he needs a break!
I attended my first doggy play dates last Sunday night, 4/15/12. There were both a Small Dog Play Date and Large Dog Play Date. Talk about fun! When dogs are given the chance to socialize and play with beasts of their own size, it’s rumble tumble time! Enjoy the entire gallery and purchase favorites of your pooch on my website.

It was a very fuzzy class of puppy graduates that I photographed on 4/15/12. The kind of dogs you just want to squeeze hug and pet! OK, who am I kidding, I want to do that to all dogs!

Last Saturday, some of the advanced Rally dogs of Ohio Air Dogs, demonstrated their skills for a great group of children and adults at the Brunswick Library Pet Palooza! It was so much fun to watch the faces of the young ones, as the dogs did tricks and followed commands. Rally is so impressive to me. It’s the ultimate way to give your companion dog “a job” while still having lots of fun! Enjoy all the photos from the event and even purchase prints of your dog, right on my website! Choose “Clients” from the menu bar. Enjoy!
Meet Snoopy! Snoopy you’ve met before. He’s part of the Rally class from my March posting! He is a Toy Fox Terrier/Italian Greyhound mix. Snoopy is a wonderful Rally dog and also “prays’ for people, as one of his cute tricks as a Therapy Dog too!
Meet Barney! Barney put on quite a show for all the children and adults, with his Rally skills. He is a Beagle/Hound mix. You can see more of Barney doing Rally in my March post about Rally!
Meet Sancho! This young Bernese Mountain Dog is a wonderful Rally dog and babysitter! Look how adorable little baby Ben is with Sancho! Ben is definitely a future handler!
Meet Lilly! She is the cutest little fluff ball! Lilly is a Havanese mix breed. Not only did she put on an amazing Rally performance, but did some fun tricks for the audience!
On Saturday, 4/14/12 there were six beautiful large dogs training in Basic Obedience, at Ohio Air Dogs in North Royalton Ohio. They were such a unique, fun group! Not only did they learn basic commands like, sit – stay, but I witnessed them jumping through hoops and practicing some basic agility moves! What well rounded dogs they have become in their training! This was week 6 of this class. To enjoy all the images from this class or make print purchases of your dog, please visit my website and choose “Clients” from the menu bar.
Meet Jake! Jake was so fluffy and adorable! He is a Shepherd mix that has a smile to him! I was so proud watching him learn his commands and try the obstacles.
Meet Fonzy! He is mix breed with agility skills! He also does a mean limbo on the hurdle! Such a beautiful boy!
Meet Mika! She is a beautiful Coonhound and has so much love! Look how adorable she sat, waiting for her turn on the training course!
Meet Max! Watch out, this talker wants to love you and please! He is a German Shepherd and did so well with his training!
Meet Corona! She’s got a heart of gold! Corona is a stunning Rottweiler. The best part is – Corona is up for adoption and looking for her forever home! If you or someone you know, are interested in meeting Corona, please contact Havranek Rescue on Petfinder! She did so well with his training!!
Meet Max! This beauty is a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. Timid at first, he tackled some big obstacles in class! Great job, Max!
