Last week, Jeanne Debanne Joined our kennel for a temporary position here to help out until our Winter Handler/Trainee arrives here.
Last week, we were able to complete many of our Fall tasks before training commences.
On Friday, I left here to go to Montreal to attend my best friends 50th birthday party. It was a great weekend visiting and enjoying great company and excellent food. I returned to the kennel on Sunday and while away purchased a Go-pro Camera to video the training and racing this Winter. For a entry level camera (base Hero Model) it produces excellent video while enduring tough conditions connected to my ATV.
Fall conditioning/Training started on Monday and the conditions were sufficient to run on Tuesday, Thursday as well as Friday. We ran two teams, one of 12 dogs and one of 11 dogs. All the dogs performed great, especially for their first runs of the season. Kira(2), our new lead dog did a fantastic job and will be a very important member of the team now and for many years to come.
If all works out as planned, we will have a minimum of three leaders under the age of two with a couple of other promising prospects to be developed.
The puppies got have their first free runs this week down by the lake.
There are new video's posted on the Puppy and Training Pages.
Until next week......
