The adult teams are progressing nicely with their conditioning/training program. We had an opportunity to work with new leader combinations & introducing Perle to lead for her first time. Perle did great until, on the last third of the run, a squirrel ran across the trail right in front of her. The temptation was too great & the Pointer in her distracted her from her job! The photos above shows her adventure! I think she learned her lesson that you don't chase a squirrel with 8 other dogs running behind you! Other than that one instance, she did great for her first time.
On Saturday, we hooked up the Hobbits for their first run and they did great!
A quote from a friend summed up their run, after seeing the video, "They ran like adults!". The hobbits are a true testimony to Indy their father.
Julia is doing a great job with the dogs and leaning rapidly.
With Julia's help, we completed another 3 houses & cut pieces to complete 10.
There are new videos on the Puppy & Training Pages.
Until next week.......
