First, Tales And Tails would like to ask that you keep our friends that are deployed within the Federal Emergency Management Agency System in your thoughts and prayers.  Yesterday several of the FEMA Task Forces were deployed to begin heading down the Texas coast in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.  This brings up a wonderful […]

Search And Rescue Saturday — 7 Day Challenge

by Mr. Taleteller on

This week I’ve not only been training Küster as usual, but we’ve added something else to our routine.  I decided to take the 7 Day Challenge, Build a Better Relationship Through Play.  It was a fun event set up by a dog trainer named Meagan Karnes.  Meagan is also a fellow blogger.

Road Tripping Fun

by Houndstooth on

Hello, everyone!  I’m Flattery and I’ve taken over the computer to write about a weekend adventure Küster and I had. That’s right, I said Küster and I had an adventure.  Bunny stayed at home to relax in the cool air of the house this time and Morgan had her crazy on, so that meant that […]

Quite The Character

by Houndstooth on

I was thinking the other day about our dogs and their personalities.  I love how unique each of them is and what each of them bring to us and our little group dynamic.  Sometimes, it’s hard to believe that they aren’t a little human with the things they do.  We all know a dog who […]

Search and Rescue Saturday — Hot Weather

by Mr. Taleteller on

It is that time of the year again, Summer, and much to my discomfort that means hot weather and training. The training doesn’t stop just because the temperature is hotter than a frogs leg in a frying pan.  However, we as trainers and dog owners need to make sure the necessary precautions are taken to […]

A Sympathetic Companion

by Houndstooth on

This past weekend, I found myself thinking about how different dogs have different auras.  Some bring a crazy, frenetic energy with them while others exude calm.  Our dogs each have their own personalities and auras.  One of ours has proven to be a most sympathetic companion. For example, Küster has a reputation for riling up […]
