Training Plans Nov 18-24, 2012

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone!!

Hopefully everyone will get to spend time with our dogs training & playing this week.

For me ; I need to work Towhee every day this week:
Today: Rental from 2-4 (private)
Monday: Obedience
Tues Faelan and Brady have field day training
Wed: hopefully I will get to work agility although we have no class this week
Thu: Turkey day, possibly dog show
Fri: Possibly dog show with Sunfire Photo Op
Sat: Rental in evening

I have an extended period of time off (Thu through next Wed), which I will hopefully use to get caught up in a few on-line classes; at least taping homework assignments and such so I have permanent references. I swear I used to not understand how people ran out of time to do all the both had to do and wanted to do, but now I sooooo understand.

Casey is enjoying just going for hikes and hanging around - perhaps once the pup's crate comes out of the backseat he will be ready to start getting into the Xterra again to go training.

Faelan is still working towards Utility (obedience), Agility and towards his SH/MH levels in Hunt Tests.

Towhee is preparing to begin her obedience career and continues to learn agility. She is starting to really tug in areas other than my home

Brady is still working foundation exercises, is beginning to tug when food is nearby, is learning his crate games and is loose at night with my bedroom door closed.

Yesterday I made the 3 1/2 hour trek to go train with a friend. Long drive but worth it, we both have high energy goldens that love to work, so the over three hours we worked flew by.

Friday I'll be taking Flip to the local agility trial so we can do some training on dirt.

Saturday we're driving to a building to train.

Oh yeah, I forgot to add, I was very proud of Flip yesterday. Before we started working the dogs we spread popcorn all over the training floor. And Flip never did eat a piece, the whole time he was out on the floor . You could see him very purposefully avoiding it.

I got a picture of Jonah with his ribbons from 2 weeks ago. The pictures turned out so cute. We are fine tuning broadjump and retrieves this week with a little heeling and fronts. He had a perfect front for me this past Sat. with a beautiful finish.

Training yesterday went very well. We trained inside at the club and all 4 dogs came along. I think I have figured out that if my brother is home, that is when Casey chooses to stay at home – ever hopeful that a hike or cooking spree may occur; in our house, anything that falls to the floor is fair game and the dogs often get to have hand-outs as well.

Faelan: Heeling, signals, go-outs, directed jumping, moving stand for exam, directed retrieve, figure 8, heeling transitions, ring entrances, ROF and just goofing around with toys. Oh and scent articles.

Towhee: Heeling, transitions (her fasts were off), directed jumping, stand for exam, downs at my side (probably 20 or so), retrieving, tugging, playing, figure 8, fronts , a few finishes, smack-da-baby, ring entrances

Brady: Sit, downs, get-it get-it get-it come, baby heeling, recalls with running through my legs for a treat, weaving around my legs, downward facing dog stretch position, shadow handling for front crosses, crate games. Tugging is on hold due to teething.

Casey: Heeling, directed jumping, go-outs, fronts, finishes, retrieve on flat, recalls, playing

Anyway, today is a rough day for me. Many sadnesses and passings not just on this board but among friends and family, so since this is Thanksgiving Week, today I give thanks that I am able to train my dogs, wake up with them all licking my face and wagging their tails so hard the bed shakes and surely the neighbors must hear the thumping or tails against the walls. I am thankful that Casey, Faelan, Towhee and Brady all share in my life and am thankful to all the dogs who have walked beside me but who now have silent footsteps.
