I had a fairly active training day - this morning I brought Brady to Petco to get a new collar. Then we had socialization hour in the plaza
Brady is sitting for greeting pretty consistently and only came across one person who he went wide around. Then we stopped at one of my gun clubs and I tossed a wing a few times while shooting was going on - this worked very well until the guys all stopped shooting to admire Brady; but he got to meet a lot of men who smelled of guns & cigarettes & cigars and such and loved it! And the guys seemed to love him as well
Then we worked some at home.
I had a rental this evening, Casey decided to sleep in but for the others
Faelan: Go Outs, directed jumping, scent articles, signal exercises, more go outs with various toys thrown about, tug, moving stand, ROF, ROH, broad Jumps (3 different mini sessions)
Towhee: Heeling, heeling and more heeling. Recalls, ROF, ROH, stand for exam, tug, ring entrances and set ups. More tug. I forgot the Figure 8 and I have to practice downs tomorrow; she frequently curls when going down so I need to address this but it is obviously not one of my favorite exercises LOL 3 mini sessions for her
Brady: Crate games, entering the ring, sit, down, stand, whack-the-baby, tug, baby get-it, get-it, get-it come games, more crate games, shadow handling for front crosses, baby heeling. Brady only had 2 mini sessions.
I was alone this session so ended up leaving before the 2 hours were up, but feel we got a LOT done. There had been run thrus during the day so in addition to the toys & such I put out, there was fluff & such on the floor - I was very much surprised that Faelan was distracted on his Go-Outs once he noticed the fluff etc, so added tug toys, bars etc to help him work through the Go-Outs (yes, they need to be straight and you do need to keep going even if a white label seems to be calling your name). It was a hard session for Faelan I think, since he didn't even notice all the stuff while heeling but wham!! on the Go-Outs he did.
