The spring is here!

Finally! This winter has held a firm grasp on my part of the country (it’s still holding on tight in other parts), but now it seems as the spring is finally here. The snow is melting away more and more each day, and it’s no longer freezing cold outside. I can actually spend time outside without a jacket for the first time in months!

I am actually one of the seemingly few in Norway who loves the winter. I get just as excited every time the first snow is pouring down from the sky. Even so, I do get tired of it. Especially at the end when there’s only ice and more ice around. There’s no fun being outside when all you do is trying to keep balanced while sliding around in every direction. I can’t take Hugin with me in the woods, cause his feet and legs always start to bleed from the icy snow.

Another positive side to the spring is definitely the light. The sun is up from 6 am to 8 pm now, in stead of 9 am to 3 pm. If you live in the north the sun won’t come up at all during the winter. On the other side, it doesn’t set during the summer. At least it does that here.

I am really looking forward to hiking and camping this spring and summer. Luna is going to sleep in a tent for the first time in her life, and I think it will be a wonderful experience!

  1. It’s not just Norway, Eva – the UK has had one of the coldest winters for some years. The wind here has come from the East (from Norway and Sweden) bringing cold temperatures, and our damp Atlantic weather bumped into the cold, so we had lots of late snow!

    Like you I love the snow, especially in our (small) mountains – I’ll be writing about a couple of trips in my blog soon. Meanwhile, we have the first signs of a thaw, so my skis and ice axe will be going back in the cupboard 😦

      I see! So we’re to blame for your winter! 😉

      Fortunately one can go hiking without skis, too! 🙂 I hope you’ll enjoy the spring!

  2. Ja det skal jammen bli godt med vår og sommer, selv om jeg også elsker det når den første snøen kommer!

Had a lovely training session with this guy today. For a long while now I have been ill, and my training motivation hit rock bottom, leading to him not being trained to cope with every day life. Extra has not suffered from this, we have not trained these things because they have not been a part of our life. The mayor thing to teach this guy is to stop herding cars, and today's training started at the end of a big field next to the motor high way. We worked our way towards the driving cars, reinforcing contact, calm behaviour and ignoring the cars. The reinforcement was delicious wiener bites and the occasional tug toy when the situation called for it. I am still amazed about the suverinity of this dog! Even though he for 3 years has been herding cars whenever we have gotten close to them, this was an easy training. We got so close to the highway I had to stop because I would not go any closer to the moving cars, not because it was too much for him to handle! It was almost like herding cars never had been any issue at all ever in his life. One should never underestimate the power of reinforcing the behaviour we want of our dogs. I dared having him off leash as shown in the picture here from today, though I am not a fool: I went back to the safer side of the field just in case and I will never have any dog of any sort strolling close to the road off leash. This training session made me remember the good feelings about training dogs, why I used to love it so much and why I wanted border collies in the first place. It was just what I needed to get back in the saddle after such a long absence from what I have been doing for so many years! Today was a good day. Thank you Extra, for being such an awesome dog! 💪 #dogtraining #dogtrainer #positivereinforcement #clickertraining #bordercollie #awesomedog #happydog #dogowner #dogbehaviour
