It was a good week for training the dogs, getting in another four days of running of two teams/day. The yearlings are progressing nicely with the one who was a slower starter getting more confidence and developing to be a good runner. However, one of the yearlings that started off great, has regressed and not sure of itself at the start of the runs. However, after a mile into the run he kicks in and runs with enthusiasm. With patience and perseverance, all should develop into great sled dogs.
Training young dogs is no automatic nor instant success. It takes time to develop young dogs.
The weather this week is changing with colder, frosty nights. One night, we even had a dusting of snow.
The forecast for the coming week is for warmer days and mostly rain. I hope this changes as the week unfolds.
Until next week.........
