This is Baylee. She's about 9 years old now and still as nutty as the day we got her. Loves scratches, running (often round and round in circles) and not sharing her toys with us. Hates water with a passion and will bark at the waves when we are down at the beach. Would be keen to see just how many k's she clocks up while we aren't home.

Luna spends most of her time on walks waiting intently for somebody to throw her tennis ball for her.

 

 

 

Bonus picture of her with Savannah our youngest cat (about 2-3 months old in this picture).

This would be very useful as I would love to find out where all the random children's toys are being taken from...

Would be amazing for my 15 year old daughters miniature poodle as she competes with her in Agility and has trained her completely herself since getting her as a puppy. Already after reaching competing age only just over a year ago she has won herself up to the top competing level in both Jumpers and Agility. Yesterday she won a 1st in Senior Agility, the top level and this was only her third comp in senior. She also got a 1st in Intermediate, the next level down and a 4th in Jumpers A. All in an un-split show meaning she was competing against all class of dog from miniatures right up through the big boarder collies and German Shepherds etc. I've attached a photo of her proudly showing her Ribbons, treats and Prize envelopes.

 



 

Would be great to see if she's barking while we are out and to see how much she's sleeping.

Mali has some pretty odd positions he gets himself into - and a favourite way of lying down for him seems to be with his belly flat on the the ground and his back legs flipped out  almost as if he is double jointed.

 

 

 

Having one of these devices would be a lot of fun I think!

 

 

 

He is Obsessed with balls.  When we take him out he will chase a ball anywhere - I don't have a picture of this (yet) but we are close to a beach with a little sea wall.  When we throw the ball in the water - he will happily just go straight off the edge without a pause or hiccup in his stride in any way!

 

 

 

The pictures I have mostly show him in some of the odd positions he often gets into. The 1st one is of him patiently waiting for Fibre.  3 years ago - the contractors stopped at the corner about 50 metres from my house, and they are FINALLY coming back to give it to me! YAY!

Not the best photo. When our dogs were younger my husband would take them to the west end of the sandy beach nearby for long runs in the evenings because even though we have a very big yard they needed a lot of exercise and loved to run. Late in the day one winter our shepherd disappeared while on one of these runs. Husband came home to get me to come help look- it had turned dark and started to rain. So for hours we drove down the west end of this very long beach calling, thinking he might have gone over the dunes since if we had come across him on the beach he would have come to the car. We were hoping the dog would recognise the sound of the car and see our headlights so we kept doing circles to sweep the beach with light and periodically beeped the horn. The wind was howling by now, the surf was pounding and our voices weren't carrying. It was pitch black and the tide was coming in. We were about forced to give up when I suggested we try the east end even though it was a long way from where husband had last seen him. A few kilometres down the east end of the beach I spotted the glow of something's eyes in the headlights and we stopped the car, got out and called our dog's name. All of us were super happy to be re-united and he's never gone out of sight for more than ten seconds on any walk since. He is now ten and he's happy with much shorter walks and swims in the river.

This is Millie. She is a 5 year old miniature poodle/Chihuahua cross. We are this dear little girls 5th home would you believe!! We rehomed her at age 1 1/2 and she came to us with so many psychological issues after some very bad previous homes. After many months of love and training, she is the most loving and delightful pooch you could ever hope to meet. She came with a very bad habit of running away and we can happily now trust her 99% of the time not to run off but please consider her for a tracking device as if she ever decided to take up her old habit of self exploration, it would be so fantastic to be able to track her! This would really help to keep her safe. Thanks for this opportunity! Here she is looking "down the rabbit hole" Alice in Wonderland style!!

Max is very curious and likes to explore. He needs an activity tracker.

This is my girl Pebbles, she is always looking for something new to climb.  She is like having a mountain goat around!

I do a considerable amount of walking with two labradors, one a former guide dog puppy and the other is still a guide dog puppy. Bonnie has a heart condition but is possibly the fittest dog I know, she outruns all others. At the beach the other day with three other dogs, she took turns running with each of them, and then repeated. She literally ran the three into the sand. It would be fun to see how much mileage she does compared to the more sedate three year old.

A husky-cross escapologist so the tracker will be well used.
