Self administered #mondioring aptitude test this morning:
- 25m recall
- Leashed heeling (off leash, buy technically lured)
- ID check
- Distractions
- Down 30 sec w/ handler out of sight
- Social Encounters (not a "neutral" dog IMO)
---------
What do you think #workingdog folks?  Did we pass โœ”๏ธ or fail ๐Ÿšซ ?
---------
Dean did jump the gun a bit on a couple finishes.  I didn't have a group of people, but came up with distractions on the spot.  About 3 min after the last clip we crossed another dog / handler pair and both noticed and acknowledged each other, marked, rewarded, and kept moving.

Wait for it... The end of Dean's first swimming lesson in the Little Pigeon River, TN.... In the rain of course.

Weighted retrieve, 2.5 lbs.  Dean and I have been working formal retrieves for a little while now, but only with various  toys until yesterday.  We're not quite there on the finish, but getting close.

Engagement is about creating a feeling.

After several deleted rants, all I can say is that the relationship one has to constantly WORK to build with their working dog is irreplaceable and something few people truly understand.  I was at the park last weekend and truly honored that a Vietnam veteran stopped to watch and then thanked me for working my dog and shared that it really helped him get through the day.  Helping others is awesome, but it feels good when your hard work is noticed and appreciated too.

Cleared by the vet to resume all bite and tug work! ๐Ÿถ๐ŸŠ I'm also reminded of the importance of "just playing" with your dog.

First day training backwards heeling.  Lures in the first video, rewards in the second.  Rain doesn't stop #workingdogs ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Everyone wants something different from their dog, but I don't understand people who don't train their dog at all.  Your bond with your animal, and thereby you, will be indefinably greater and grateful for it. ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŠ

Dean's 2nd birthday is this weekend and we'll have been together for 6 months.  It's been a long and wonderful road so far!

No one sings like you anymore...

So now you know, who gets mystified
So now you know, who gets mystified
Show me the power child
I'd like to say
That I'm down on my knees today
Yeah, it gives me butterflies, gives me away
Till I'm up on my feet again
Yeah I'm feeling
Oh, I'm feeling outshined, outshined, outshined, outshined
