We had a good training day on Saturday. It was a nice turn out even though it was overcast, cold and yes, a bit windy. We trained some marks, some blinds, a walk up and diversions. A diversion bumper or bird is one that is thrown as the dog is on his way back from fetching a bumper or a bird. The dog can look at the diversion, but you don’t want them to drop the bumper/bird they have to pick up the diversion.
Storm had a better week last week. She seems to be getting into the swing of training. A few pictures of her working.
Thunder has always been a bit more expressive watching diversions. You never know when they might throw a duck.
Thunder also practiced an honor and did a good job on it.
Freighter was at the vet for the last of his puppy shots and to be micro-chipped. He weighs 53 pounds. Where did the little puppy go?
