Yay! 10 days since stitches for Faelan so I removed the cone although for now at least, he still has the stitches in his leg -- the stitches in his mouth are dissolvable. Plus! He had hos last dose of doxie last night
So, we trained and played under the lights this morning. I set up gating and go-out jumps - between the ground being frozen and the lack of exercise & activity the dogs have had (no sign of Faelan having ACL troubles either!). the jumps were set at 16 inches. I do need to add rice to their diets again since they are all lighter than I like.
Heeling with signals really nice. Go Outs ith DJ - really really nice, Rally fronting exercises - a few were slightly off, most were good. Brady:
Heeling really nice, signals not so much -- creeping again. Go Outs really really nice as were his DJ. Rally fronting exercises - out of perhaps 15 fronts, 1 was slight;y off. Aedan:
Heeling was really nice. Moving (from heel position) drops were great. Moving (again from heel position) stands need improvement but much better - he is swinging slightly in front of me to stand but almost there! Rally front games were nice - I do need to decide if I will work on getting both hind legs tightly tucked, for now I am inclined to accept one or the other being slightly out at times and just rewarding more heavily when they are both neatly tucked -- attitude over precision at this point. Everything to reduce potential stress points with the youngsters, right?
