I'm continuing to condition Winter post TPLO. Seems like it is taking forever to rebuild muscle. I would love to try Master Spaniel upland tests with her. We would need a sit to flush. I have some friends who do Pointing Lab tests who will help me train it when she's ready. We have been working on her UD skills and she should be ready by to trial by March.
i have been working on obedience skills with Flyer since the end of summer. Again It feels like it forever ( I may not be the most patience person) but his heeling, fronts and finishes are starting to gel. He is also learning bits and pieces of exercises though UD that we will put it all together at some point. I would like to see him in Novice this fall but I have never been good at keeping up in obedience once we can get in the water again. Field trumps obedience every time. In field, I hope to run him in Master this summer.

Id like to get Winx a WC and possibly JH. I took her to the National but the marks were so much closer than she was used to and she blew by them. By the time she came back to the first one, she had forgotten what she was doing.

I plan to get Pilot started on the table work and all that so hopefully hell be able to get something this year.

We are continuing to work towards WCX and SH. WCX in Canada has a water and land blind, so closer to SH. We suspect Shala has become collar-wise or test-wise, as she can do everything in the tests in training no problem... and then blows up at tests. Our WCX last summer, she didn't even complete the land series. So we are working to figure out what it is about tests, as we keep training...

I finished the HRCH on Cassie (Wasatch's Resolute Cassie) last September and that was a goal checked off. We will continue to hunt this winter for crane and quail until that wraps up at the end of February. Somewhere in the next couple of months, I will breed her and then wrangle puppies into the spring. After that, we start getting ready hunting season with training those early morning hours during the summer, possibly with a puppy in tow. My hunting goals will include a couple more weeks of dove hunting than last year, and more time this year than last chasing waterfowl and pheasants in the Dakotas before returning to Texas for the winter.

Have fun everyone!

My main goal for Fisher is to pass the WC test in July and enter our first show in October, then compete in a couple dock diving competitions for fun. I'm pretty new to dog sports so this will be my first year of actual competing (besides one dock diving competition last year). I'm starting off the year with an obedience class put on by my local HRC club so I'm hoping to find some people to train with in that class as none of my current dog friends are hunt/field people.
