Another busy week here with 4 days of training and looking after the puppies.
The training here was very good with great trails and an opportunity on Thursday to increase the speed for Team A on the 7.5 mile run. They finished strong and showed no signs of fatigue after the run.
Team B also done well with a little slower run due the lack of training miles on Olive. Olive has of the last run 100 miles of training this year as compared to the balance of the dogs with 150 miles accumulative.
We also did some more leader training with Lilly, Lance and Libby.
Lilly will now be running half the training runs with Venus at the lead position. She is doing great and will make a supper leader.
Lance ran for 1/3 of the 4.5 mile run with Kira and was much more comfortable at lead. He has a good potential for lead and was a good complement to Kira.
Libby ran for half the 4.5 mile run with Kira and did a great job. She is showing the ability to be a very good leader. She sometimes gets a little distracted by objects on the side of the trail. But, she is driving hard up front the same as at the Point position.
The puppies are growing and getting more active. Their eyes opened the later part of this week and are trying to walk. They are eating a lot and growing quickly.
Fun times here with lots of activity.
Until next week.......
