We have been out training the dogs on a fairly regular basis although meeting the challenges of extreem frigid temperatures and an over abundance of snow!
However, the dogs seemed to get in shape very quickly considering the late start to the season for running.
We did accomplish several goals of developing some new Leaders in particular Lance and Lloyd.Both dogs showed great confidence, speed and enthusiasm at the Lead position and will be exciting new leaders for next season.
Also Olive, who suffered an ankle injury two seasons ago, returned to running with the team after a long recovery period.
Although starting her for only a short distance to ensure her safety, she slowly progressed to the complete 4.5 mile training loop.
She was very enthusiastic to run and truly enjoyed herself.
I was so proud of her and it showed that patience with her recovery paid off!
Until next time........
