AFFENPINSCHER GATHERING 14-16 July 2017

affenkolsasj 2017.jpg

This year's affenpinscher gathering was the seventh and with the sixth unofficial show and again it was a success. This year there were a lot of people and many for the first time.
It all started Friday morning when they first arrived, this year people took the trip from Bergen and Haugesund in the west, from Troms in the north and some came from England to spend the weekend with us.
The Friday went to get everything in place and when the tent was up there was home-made pizza, the talk went and experiences were exchanged.

On Saturday morning some of the people here went to Vaaler and the show there, while the rest of us stayed at home and finished everything here. The kitchen people made freshly baked baguettes, waffles and cake with coffee / tea and soft drinks.
When the others came home we had a meeting that we had called for in connection with the creation of a new Affenpinscherklubb. An interim board was elected. Afterwards, there was a grooming course where many followed closely and tried out with experienced help present.
The activity committee, read Nina, had really been creative this year and came up with a lot of fun and at first the game kubb was playd, the laughter sat loose and you can safely say it was a big success.
We grilled and enjoyed us all night and Nina had made a quiz where we again got the laughter muscles properly trained.

On Sunday we had our unofficial show with Oystein Eikeseth as judge of this year. The results from both shows, Affenpinscher show and from Vaaler can be found here.

AFFENPINSCHER GATHERING

18-17th June 2011


Norways first affenpinscher gathering and it was a successful gathering in every way. This is something we will continue to do every year forward now.

Affentreffet dag 1-ALLE.JPG


Friday 17th June and I put the dogs in the car and we drove down to Larkollen.
I, Eva, Geir, Ann Jorunn and our dogs borrowed Jacinto and Linn`s cabin for the weekend so we had only 5 minutes to drive to Rygge bygdetun where the gathiering would be.
Before we drove to the cabin we walked the dogs in Linn and Jacinto`s place and afterwards we had a lovely Spanish omelet made by Linn
.

Picture 1-3: from our walk in the forest

Saturday 18th June We got up early in the morning and walked the dogs, ate breakfast and drove off to the place where the gathering would be.
It was a nice and big area we had borrowed and perfect for us and all the dogs.
People started to arrive at 0830 and it came many people and dogs, 30 affenpinschere came, 1 Spanish waterdog, 1 griffon, 1 golden retriver and of course all their owners :)

Linn Berenguer (Kennel El Nuciero) started to welcome everyone and then procedeed with a puppy training/beginner course. I  was one of the pupils there and must say that although I have had dogs for many years and are a breeder that you never learn to much. I felt I learned a few things and had many aha experiences, great performed by Linn.
After Linn`s training Ellinor Gustafson (Kennel Gustoff) had ring training with us and as always when I am on her trainings I learn something new and useful. I also got feedback from the others that this was both fun and educational.
Anne Cecilie Andersen (Kennel Smutic) told us and showed us a little about the benefits and use of the clicker.  I bought a clicker and will now start to use what I learned with my dogs.

We finished the day with barbecue at the cabin
.

I used the opportunity and gathered together all the offspring of my male Clooney, Darkle Dishily Dishevelled
,  who was there and took a family picture of them all. It was incredibly fun to see them all together, a total of 10 offspring from 4 different litters and 3 different combinations.

Sunday 19th June we started an hour later and in rain, but no problem because we got people to come to the cabin where we had a large party tent where we all could stay.
We started in the tent with a grooming course, how I groom my affenpinscher.
Me and Grete Hansen (Kennel Schnaffentangen) took care of this and from the feedback it was both successful and fun for those who participated.
Afterwards we took the dogs for a walk (the rain had stopped) where we had a lot of questions about affenpinschers on the route.
We ended the day with lunch together in the cabin and gave all awards who had been there, the puppies got a special puppy prize and the winners of all the questions also got something extra.


This was a great success and we will definitely repeat this next year and years to come :)

Thanks to everyone who helped and to all who came, together we made this to a very nice and informative weekend.
