Tracking Again

Kane and I have 4 things (plus polishing this and that) that we need to work on learning before the trial in November:

Tracking:
  • Get to "the end" and track with no food.
  • Articles
Obedience:
  • Retrieves (flat, jump and a-frame)
  • Send out
Protection:
  • Need to polish up a few things such as grip, outs and escape bite.
So we have started tracking seriously again. I have to track in the mornings because it is way to hot in the afternoons/evenings. So I've been tracking with Kane on both Saturdays and Sundays and at least once during the week. It's just hard to get my butt out of bed before 6 am!
We're up to hot dogs every 7 steps and things are going well. I nee
d to get better at remembering where my track is, so I don't confuse him. In my head, I start going "where is my turn? I don't see it! Is this it? or is it over there?) and it's pretty clear that he senses my nervous in-head talking and it rubs off. There won't be any markers at the trial! :-)
