It was wonderful having Franziska and Christian here on the final days of their visit to Canada. It was great catching up on all that has happened in the last two years since their last visit here.
This week, we had everything from snow to rain, electrical power outages, grey skies and on Friday a glimpse of the Sun.
The young dogs are steadily improving and fitting in with the adults on the training runs. Levi has learned how to pace himself, Levi's idea of pace is other dogs hard driving, following Willy. It is a lot easier to teach a young dog by running her/him with an adult that can be a good influence.
The two teams of 14 dogs is steadily improving and starting to put in consistent runs. This week, we they also got practise with passing other teams (head on and overtake) as well as seeing both Franziska and Christian at the side of the trail taking photos. All these experiences will help them in races.
Now is the time, we start watching the long term weather forecasts to enable to maximise the scheduled runs on our training program.
This year has been more challenging due to the unusual weather patterns.
Until next week.......
