Podengowalks 2016



Winter walk at Gärdet, Stockholm January 9, 2016

Lill and her podengo Totti took the lead for a nice winter walk with scrunch from the snow under our shoes and the sun glittering in the snow. A nice bunch of different ages from a little girl in a pram to a slightly older mother-in-law, we think it is great fun that the Podengo walks attracts many generations.

After a bit of shaking and trying to get our chilly toes warm it is nice to end the day with something warm to drink at the café Himmelska Hundar (Heavenly dogs) where our four-footed also are welcome.

Thanks to Lill and Totti who were today’s guides.

Winter walk in Danderyd, Stockholm February 20, 2016

A slightly frosty winter day, but still there was so many that came to the Podengo walk in Danderyd. We met at the golf course where the dogs could run around at first before we went for a lovely walk in the woods and the area around the course.

A great and lovely mix of podengos and whippet who bravely managed the cold temperature for a fun day with us podengo owners. We ended up warming ourselves with good coffee and goodies that we brought with us.

Many thanks to Pekka Nykopp who was the guide of today’s nice meeting!

Theme Dog photography, Häringe March 5, 2016

To this meeting we have booked Katja who is good at photographing dogs. We spend an afternoon out at Häringe Castle just outside Stockholm, where the dogs first run off in the field before it becomes portrait photography in a beautiful forest glade. A little rain did nothing except that some furs became curly and a little dirty, but nice photos it was at each one after our walk.

In the beautiful castle we then ended this joyful occasion by enjoying Häringe’s wonderful Afternoon Tea where even the dogs were welcome.

Thanks to Katja Koho who took the nice photos!

Theme Ring Training, Stockholm, April 9, 2016

A spring day in April, we arrange a ring training to show and we were told how it works during a dog show. We practice walking, standing at the ground and on the table, the judge’s handling the dogs, etc. A little later, we run our own little “inoff” (inofficial exhibition) where the Podengo club’s chairman Pekka Nykopp was judging the dogs, and together with Katja explained the different steps during an exhibition. We got many great tips.
We conclude with a nice party session where everyone also got the Swedish Kennel Club’s booklet Dog Show.

Many thanks to Pekka and Katja for today’s ring training!

Study visit to Hundstallet May 14, 2016

This time we had booked a study visit at the Hundstallet (A dogshelter in Stockholm). We had arranged the visit exclusively for Podengo Friends and during this afternoon Petter, who is responsible for dogs with problems. He told us about how their activities work. After a nice coffee break, Petter showed us around the area and finally we get to meet the dogs in the dog stalls. We also collected some money that we donate to the Dog shelter, and many of us also become members.

Many thanks to Petter for a very nice and informative reception.

Theme meeting Tracking Norrköping June 5, 2016

Today it became a fun activity day where we tried to track with our podengos. Susanne Pärson from Krullets kennel is an instructor and showed us the basics before we put our own little track which our podengo could then work with.
Really fun day that was appreciated by both dogs and owners.

Many thanks to Susanne! Thanks also to Åke Esperi and Bitten Wengström for nice pictures!

Summer picnic Tyresta, Stockholm June 19, 2016

Lisa with sweetest little Zwip takes us first on a podengo walk in the scenic Tyresta national park. During the way, we took the opportunity to test little courage for the dogs, because they had to climb up and down for a fairly steep staircase.
We finish with a lovely summer picnic in the green grass.

Many thanks Lisa Bergendahl with her podengo Zwip who were today’s guides!
