As I mentioned a while back, we started a doggie drill team at Ahimsa. Last weekend, at the Furry 5K to support the Seattle Animal Shelter, we did our first show. While it wasn’t perfect, I still thought it turned out great! The most important part is that the dogs were treated well, even if there was a mistake. We definitely had a great time and are practicing hard for our next gig. See our routine for yourself here:

p.s. If you’d like to join the drill team, let us know.
Join us for the first meeting of the Ahimsa Dog Training Drill Team! Our drill team will meet every other Friday night at 7 pm. We will perform at various dog events in the Seattle area to show off the power of positive dog training.
Tricks trained with positive reinforcement only.
Dogs should already have good training focus. Not perfect, but good.
Dogs need to be able to be fairly close to other dogs.
Rehearsal is to come up with moves and practice them as a group.
Free, $5 suggested donation to the Charity of the Month.
At some point, we may have tryouts, but for now, we’ll practice with whoever is interested.
There will not be an instructor, because this is not a class, but rather a rehearsal. An Ahimsa staffer will lead the group. She will probably have her own dog present.
