Dogs ready for training, 8-2-14

Dogs ready for training, 8-2-14

We began training just after 7:00 a.m. Saturday morning, but with 14 dogs and 3 hours of training, I’m just going to post a few of the pictures. We had quite a variety of dogs: Labs, Brittanys, GSP, English Setter and Weimaraner. I wanted to focus on Doc and Mia’s honoring, and my trainer’s assessment was that they did very well, both pointing and retrieve, as well as honoring.

  1. That was a nice variety of dogs for your training. I bet Mia and Doc got a lot of good practice honoring the other dogs. So was the retriever pointing or flushing?

    • The more they work with other people and dogs, the more comfortable they become doing it. We don’t have any training clubs or organizations in this area, so it’s good when they interact with other dogs. The Labs were working on flushing and retrieving.
