Training plans for the week anyone?
Today I went to a match with Faelan, Towhee & Brady. Brady will be missing class tonight since he has already had a very busy day learning about being cute enough to be petted, watching dogs in conformation and obedience, touching, playing attention games, walking nicely on leash and being in a crate too.
Towhee was in Novice and I thought did pretty well for her 2nd (maybe 3rd) time in the ring. On the heel on leash, she misread a slow cue, heel off leash she became distracted and she completely lost focus directly before an about turn and her front on the recall was poor, but I had been curious about how she would react to the pressure of dogs and people right behind me .. she could use more practice
Overall, I was very happy with Ms Towhee fresh off of maternity leave and her attitude was very nice.
Faelan had a Utility run thru and needed help on several exercises so is definitely not ring ready yet but his attitude was great and his heeling wonderful. Utility is hard <sigh>
We have agility class on Wednesday and I hope to work more obedience with bot Faelan and Towhee this coming week. Brady will continue his agility and obedience foundation work and Casey will be worked to keep his tail a-waggin and his smile gleaming.
