This time of the season, we have to be very careful not to overheat the dogs.
We will not run the dogs unless the temperature is at a minimum below 10 Celsius and low humidity.
We ran two teams of 10 of experienced on the first day.
They we crazy to go as would be expected for the first run.
Luckily for me, I had my new Handler, Clement Louvard, here to assist with the run.
The dogs did good for the first run.
The Yearling team did not run as the temperature was already to warm after the first two teams. Even though we started at 8 am and were completely finished by 10.30 am.
The above video is of the second team with Darth having his first run at lead.
Clement is here from France and arrived here at the kennel on Sunday.
He did a real good job for his first time and he is a very quick learner.
Due to the temperatures, we spent the rest of the week making the pieces to repair the dog houses that need new fronts and roofs.
Next week is supposed to be cooler, so we hope to get in more training runs.
Until next week......
