Training Plans for the Week of November 6-12

Here we are again!! What's everyone planning for this week?

I have to put the week on hold until I figure out how Toby is going to fare. He is my priority right now until we resolve this latest health issue. Praying it can be resolved.

Other than that, we do have agility trials tomorrow.

What nobody working this week???

Weather is supposed to turn bad tomorrow and get worse through Wed. My hope is to get the dogs out early tomorrow before the bad weather. Teddi and Belle are priority as they did not get out today. We were working around the house, and we played with Gabby and Quinn.

Today I did some obedience with Gabby, I am trying to do the darn foot work, and then wrap the Goober around me. I am tossing the treat when I turn so she wraps tight and quick and drives forward. Without my dog, I can manage the foot work, with my dog coordinating the treat... not so much. I never said I could walk and chew gum at the same time. We did some come and front, heeling and stand stays. I went over on a stand stay to pick a leaf off her, she moved. I think I will work for now with me moving around her, handling her before we graduate to someone else.

Did a little obedience with Teddi. We did some bumper holds and partying. She got excited about that so that is a good thing. Then I got her tug toy out and we played together with that. Teddi is not really toy motivated, but I am trying to get her "playing WITH me". She never has done that well. Then we went outside and did a little heeling and sit stays with dad moving around her.

Finished the day with Gabby doing a little agility going out to the table, following my motion. Then we did weave entries off a single jump ample room. First with me on the left, then with me doing a front cross to get on the right. Getting her used to the motions.

Monday/Tues Gabby has agility class. Hope on Tuesday to get some obedience practice in also. Teddi on Monday has to go for a LONG walk we are on a diet. Tuesday, a medium walk and play games at the park.

Wednesday Gabby and Teddi have obedience class

Thursday FTP and whistle sit work Teddi goes for a bike run

Friday go for a run at the park, Teddi gets another long walk

Sat and Sun I have an agility trial with my friends dog. We will see how the day goes. Quinn is running too.

I am glad to see SOMEONE is training this week!!!
I've got a mental sketch of our week now that Toby seems to be not getting any worse.
Monday---off
Tuesday---drop in obedience, which is 15 minutes in the ring. I entered him in Versatility in 4 shows in December, so I figure I need to remind him what an obedience ring looks like.
Wednesday---off
Thursday---Dan's
That's as far as I've gotten...

I'm just trying to block out the fact that the weekend is over and I didn't get close to finishing my very short to-do list...

Today I worked some obedience and Ri did great. His heeling is really coming along! Did a little bit of work on the stand for exam. Unfortunately, he decided to check out once I got the bumpers out. No clue what happened. Didn't want to get into heel position, didn't want to retrieve the correct bumper, didn't want to deliver to hand (he ran around me play-bowing). I even threw him a fun bumper and he ran to it and then started sniffing around. I ear pinched him. I hadn't done that yet in the field because we have just moved to walking fetch in the house. But I just couldn't let him get away with it. The good thing was that he dove for the bumper the second I took hold of his ear. Good sign that I am actually doing this whole FF thing right.

Ok, so rest of the week:
Monday: off, clinical all day for me
Tuesday: getting Riot to get in heel position correctly even with lots of bumpers around, casting
Wednesday: Hoping to train down at the Dahls!
Thursday: marks, heeling, stand for exam, stays
Friday: casting
Saturday: not sure. Something fun, like a hike

We are just going to have fun this week.

Play in agility, with me learning my footwork while the dogs do stuff they know, like jumping. Fetching and some basic obedience is all I plan on doing. I figure, why start something when I won't be able to continune on after Friday. I'll probably drive into town a couple days to train with friends, not sure when, they usually send an e-mail the day before.

I'll be training vicariously through you all.

Monday Field training at 3, off to obedience at 6:15, then a meeting at South Shore Waterfowlers Association. Will be back home at 10:00
Tuesday Car goes to autobody shop because I was rearended on my way home from a training session last week. Buffy was in the back of the car. She's OK, I'm aggravated.

Don't know when I will get my car back so the rest of my week will be spent doing obedience and whatever drills I can do within the confines of my yard.

I will be training this week but my training plan is usually a bit scattered other than certain days set aside for training (Sunday-group field work, Thursday or Tuesday obedience at building).

With the time change we are now going to have difficulty getting any training in after work, and I have family arriving on Friday from the Netherlands, so some weekend time will be used tour guiding...

But we did get out hunting yesterday. We went to Long Point on Lake Erie. It was a beautiful day--apparently too beautiful--there were duck boats everywhere!! Most of the birds decided to just stay in the sanctuary, and some of the other hunters managed to educate the few birds who were moving by skybusting. Still I managed to get three Redheads, and had shots at a Mallard drake and another Redhead, and Breeze learned to hunt out of a camo'd up duck boat!
