Bouviers In Obedience:

I am a strong proponent of Obedience training (& more!), and to this end, I offer this 'Obedience' page toTina Clifford, as she has such vast experience training & 'working' her Bouviers.  Tina owns 'Bach' (CH Hawkridge Symphony on Fire DD CD RN CGN), son to my Dante

 

In Tina's words:

I am currently serving as a Prairie Director for the Bouvier des Flandres Club of Canada.  Previously, I served as a director for the Alberta Bouvier des Flandres Club, for 16 years.

I have owned Bouviers for 23 years.  I currently have Macy 7 yrs & Bach (who is out of Dante, Jacquie's boy).  Sadly, my old boy Von passed away this past summer (2013).

I believe that a tired dog is a happy dog.  To this end, we compete in CKC, AKC & UKC Obedience, Rally, Carting, Tracking and Conformation.  When not 'competing', we 'unwind' mountain biking, roller blading, backpacking & enjoy lots of walking.

 Bach is a versatile boy.  Here he is demonstrating carting.

(You can see more photos of Bach & his achievements here.)

 



 I think all Bouvs should go to basic Obedience; they are big, strong dogs & need good manners. They are not the 'happy go lucky' Labrador Retriever and need LOTS of socialization.

Bouvs are cautious about strangers, protective about there home & bond very closely with their owners.


 Bouvs are a working breed that need a lot to do!

This talented boy is full of tricks!

 

I have titled all my dogs with conformation Championships, but I am more proud of their working titles.  They take time & effort!


I shave all my dogs down after they receive their Championship titles.  Long hair is hot & messy.  I love grooming BUT I love tracking & mountain biking in the mud even more.

 


I am always looking for someone to work my dogs with.  If you have a Bouv or are looking at the breed & have any questions, please feel free to send me an email:
