This weekend was a lot of hard work for the dogs! Snoozing in crates, barking at other dogs from within, winning titles... And not to be forgotten, Molly has been resting a shifting foreleg limp that she has had since our hike on Thursday. She seems to be feeling better, but I have been watching this limp come and go for the past few weeks either very subtle or outright lameness, so she will be getting a check up at the vet tomorrow evening as well as a Lyme test. My agility dog needs to be kept sound and better safe than sorry.
Perri and I practiced her heelwork in the yard, off lead. I am revisiting clicker training to shape Perri's heeling and focus and she did well tonight. (versus verbal markers).
It was very humid, though, and Perri got hot and panty before long. I decided that after all of the dogs' hard work, they deserved to have some fun. Out with the baby pool!
|Ohhhh this thing is GREAT!|
|Can't catch me!|
|Ein took a few delicate sips, but otherwise avoided the action.|
|Unfortunately this is all a very normal sight to be seen...|
