Training Run: 9-29-11

Notes:  Good run today. Continued to work on extended stops. With the two leaders we ran today they like to turn around back into the team so with the extended stopping exercises and “line out” command we hope to fix this one issue with our leaders. Read more…

Training Run: 9-27-11

Notes:  Tried something new today. Hooked up Marble in single lead. We knew right off the bat it was a bad idea! She headed into every open driveway and chased after dogs in the neighbor’s yards.
