This week, we continued trying dogs at different positions.
Lance got his second run at Lead and did a very good job. He was a little distracted at times but kept on running and kept his pace at lead. From what I observed he will, with more experience, make a very good Leader. Running him with Kira, they make a very good pairing.
We also started running Louis & Lloyd at Wheel and they were very impressive driving hard on each run. This was the first time they ran at the wheel position.
By doing this, we gave Blue and Levi a break. Blue always runs great giving a 100%. The change of positions was very good for Levi and he was driving hard the whole time. Levi needed a change from wheel as it a pressure position. He was far more relaxed running in the Team position.
Sam is continuing to do great at Point and driving hard with renewed enthusiasm. We tried her again at Lead and she showed that she wasn't comfortable up there.
This week both Chloe and Leo ran a 4 Dog Team and did a good job.
The trail conditions here this week were ideal with a solid fast trail.
The forecast is for a heavy dump of snow today with a prediction of 20 cm plus.
Manon did a great job handling here with both Chloe & Leo getting a five day break while in Montreal.
Until next week.......
