Training Sophie 4-4-14

Sophie followed Doc’s training session and I ran mostly doubles with her, which she handled with no problem. Age is really catching up with her and she’s losing strength in her back end. She fell over several times while stopping to pick up the bumper, but climbed back onto her feet and finished the retrieve as though she planned it that way.

She was happy to keep going but I figured about 15 minutes was enough for now. Perhaps with a little more consistency, she can build up to longer sessions but I’m leaving that up to her.
