With the cooling down of temperatures and lower humidity we now start running our dogs in earnest, we like to get out and about for four training runs a week and we enjoy camping out and running at night and in the early mornings catching the best windows on the Plain.
Flups have been enjoying leader training taking it it turns to lead up front with an experienced dog, they were making such excellent progress, we decided to run them together in lead (pic above) brilliant on their turns and hard driving. So proud of them. The dogs are building some really nice conditioning and at the end of the month we will start mixing the heavier passenger rig work with some lighter, faster work on forest trails and divide the teams so they can run at best advantage.
This month we also popped up to very wet and windy Border Union Championship show, to show under Sally Leich (Forstal) with Mars and Pickle. Super pleased with Mars' first place and a third for Pickle who hasn't had a show lead on since 2017! Good girl Pickle.
