As important as the training/conditioning is for the dogs, so is rest. The proper rest schedule is important to give the muscles time to recover after work outs.
The dogs performance is continuing to improve with them getting more in sync as a team. We have continued to work on pairings to find the best combinations. We have also been trying new dogs at the leader position looking for future leaders. We ran Merry, Sam, Yoda and Tepeu up at lead this week. All showed promise with Tepeu excelling. Both Merry, Sam and Yoda show good potential. However, they need more experience at the Point position to become more comfortable in the front of the team.
Cecile continued her bikejoring with Cosmos and introduced Sophie to it this week.
Taisa worked on Canacross Training with Nicky,Halona and Tanya. Tanya showed the best potential running out front during the whole run.
This training will help us pick the best candidates for Skijoring this Winter as well as future leaders.
Thanks to the hard work of Cecile and Taisa, the clean up around the chalet and the kennel is almost complete and ready for Winter.
Last Sunday, we awoke to our first snow of the season that actually stayed on the ground over night.
A sign of things to come.
There is a new video on the Training Page showing Tepeu at lead of a 12 dog team.
Until next week.........
