Freestyle Dogs and More Healthy Projects for You and Your Pups

For a Monday morning smile, here's a video pulled up from the Britain's Got Talent archives. The lovely Kate and Gin perform the canine freestyle act that led them to a fourth-place finish in 2008.  But the real story today is about the string of comments that led me to this wonderful act...

I like to read about Havanese (surprise!) so I set my Google alerts to pull all information about the breed. This morning's alert let me to a string of comments responding to a request for a female Havanese for breeding. Eeeks!

Thanks to Rosalie for her wise comment (and link to the video above) to this young dog owner's request regarding a female Havanese to breed irresponsible breeding:
"What you should be doing is playing with your puppy, getting him neutered and taking him to do something like agility or better yet, freestyle like this - MUCH more fun than doing (breeding) puppies."
Breeding puppies, like complicated home repairs, is better left to the pros (responsible breeders). Whether you get your dog from a shelter, breed rescue or responsible breeder, there are plenty of activities (that don't involve making more pups) you can enjoy with your pup for years to come.

In addition to agility, we enjoy lure coursing, disc catching, learning new tricks and now we're looking into a nose works class!


  1. Very well put!

  2. Thanks for sharing the video! Maybe one day our Cleopatra will be able to do tricks like that. Btw, we are getting a Havanese puppy!!! We're sooooo excited. It took much research and time, but we found a wonderful girl!
