Congratulations to Penni and Kip on their TD today! I can’t wait to hear the full report.
Meanwhile, we worked at home (in the cold wet Oregon weather) with our own tracking-dogs-in-training.
Open area at Valley of the Rogue Park. A good place to lay tracks if you like varied cover and lots of distractions.
Molly is coming right along. She’s starting to learn to pull and to indicate the article, and only got distracted a few times.
Tom is doing pretty well with his line-handling skills, too.
I don’t remember if I mentioned it, but Huxley’s tracking career was over in the first week. He is (ahem) lazy and doesn’t get motivated by either food or toys.
Alice, on the other hand, is very extremely food motivated. And she needed something new to do.
