Hiking with Dogs: Drei Seen Wanderung (Austria)

I love taking our dogs bushwalking and hiking, but I always found it challenging (in Australia) to find places to take them! As I discover dog-friendly hikes, forests and trails, I’ll blog about them to help others find interesting, beautiful and exciting places to explore with their dogs too!  Where: 3-Seen-Wanderung, near Gössenberg, Styria, Austria.

What It’s Like Travelling With a Dog

One month (and a bit) in… Obviously I’m not a pro (yet) at travelling with a dog, but it has been a bit of a learning curve. I thought while everything is still fresh and shiny and new, I’d write down my experiences. Once I’m an “old hat” at travelling with Loki, things might seem…

How To: Take Your Dog Overseas (or Into Australia)

I’ve had some fantastic reactions when I tell people I’m taking Loki on this trip with me. I’ve had to say the same thing so often that I almost have it down as a script. People: So, I hear you’re going overseas. Me: Yeah, yeah, it’s a pretty big adventure. People: Sounds great! But what…

Purpose and Pressure

At the last two competitions, the wheels fell off – especially for Loki and I. Even for Lu – my steady, usually-fairly-predictable dog was doing weird things in response to my weird mindset. My dog who thinks tunnels are dumb and contacts are awesome chose a tunnel over an A-Frame in a discrimination. My dog…

A General To-Do List

There are a lot of things to organise before this trip. Packing up one’s life and moving overseas (however temporarily) always involves a lot of planning, a lot of stress, and a lot of things to organise. Even a month-long overseas trip involves booking flights, hotels, organising things to see and do, occasionally getting visas,…
