The human considers this weather cold and wet, the #chesapeakebayretriever doesn’t see weather it’s just day or night 😉 #retrieving #retrieversgram #retrievertraining #retrieverträning
In the field we are working on Iza’s way to get a single partridge in the air. Flocked partridge, pheasants and a running partridge, is a totally different “game” to her. But single partridges might be hurt, and that is probably why she approach them differently. So she does the slowest advances possible, which isn’t really super in competition. It makes it easier to take down to pieces and work with though.
The stop 🛑 after is really good now (I don’t know how she is with running pheasant or hares though)... 😅
She’s developed a nice stop/jumping into point if she comes in the wrong wind. And she’s one great little girl when it comes to find and point the runners!
The thing I appreciate the most is that we can switch handler when ever, and she will not mind, she will just do her best. Even if it’s 5 year old Nelly that’s in charge ❤️
I’m longing for some rays of sunshine now, but there’s just glopping wet snow which results in hurting limbs and brainfog.
I’m still pleased with the dogs work today and Iza is processing a lot of information at the moment (she becomes an introvert in those periods)
Becca is actually beginning to figure out the reverse-temptation while heeling and Hagel is beginning to love the jumping. They all have steps to climb, but they are climbing ❤️
Iz, well I planned a few obedience competitions for her, but I have to be able to both walk and talk at the same time to go through those. There’s still a few I hope to be able to attend though. She is definitely more than ready...
Becca is getting closer and closer to becoming in season, and her mind is slipping away more and more. So I guess I’ll just have to accept and go from there.
Hagel is growing in every single department, both physically, mentally and in hormonal ways. She did a 100 meter out retrieving a few days ago, manage to hunting heel for whole walks no and gets really upset if one of the older girls doesn’t listen to me. 😅🤪
It’s nice to have support but they don’t always appreciate a second mums opinion 😜
and not enough blogging, but definitely some dog training 😉 #bracco #braccoitaliano #dogtraining #gundog #pointer #retrieving
Best of Breed and with the first possible Nordic certificate Patouche Mirabelle ‘Iza’ judged under Dan Eriksson.
Well all of us write here, both humans and dogs ;) At least that was the plan but it seems it´s mostly me Robyn who´s attached to the keyboard...
