It's that time of year when all of a sudden, there's a lot of work in the dogyard to be done from renewals and repairs, to brushing out dogs, clipping nails and then moving onto fixing gear, painting dog houses in the dogyard and truck boxes not to mention stripping and finishing sleds !! Geesh...
Well, at least we're over half way through the list so that's not so bad. The major back breaking work of painting the doggie platforms and over 14 dog houses ... DONE !
We began our season of obedience around meal times, play times and general social times. Now it's time to get some dogs on leashes and do something a bit more formal and structured. Just waiting for this hot and humid weather pattern to pass and then we'll begin with the youngsters. The youngsters being Sofiel, Dougie, White Feather, Miss Squish and baby Tuliq. Then some leader training with Pear, TJ, Honey and Sofiel ready for tours with Valley Snow Dogz and potentially some races. All four of these youngsters lead well this past season but we kept it simple for them. This winter they'll get to explore their capabilities a bit more so I'll work on their leader skills while walking them on leashes around our trails.
We love our large run area which has been fabulous for recall and group recall.. such fun!
