Have a great Summer and be safe out there. We’re on vacation until it cools off a bit, just too hot for outdoor anything, just indoor sports for now !!!
A little training at our club with our new trainer.
It’s cooler, time to go back to training. A little tracking, obedience and agility to prepare for our next title.
The tracks are getting longer and better article indication.
In obedience, the heeling with attention is getting better and better. The dumbbell retrieve on flat is getting there and in the jump the height is being worked on for better success at jumping the higher height over and retrieving the dumbbell. The send out is getting longer and more accurate.
Agility is done as an all around working for the dog. It teaches attention to the handler, distance, and accuracy, it then passes on to tracking, and obedience.
I like to cross train the boxers, it keeps them and me on our toes. It teaches the boxers other skills that they can then use in other situations. Agility helps to build confidence, coordination and cooperation at least in my boxers, can’t speak for others, just mine.
