so so negligent on my part :)

last week was the second week in a row that i ended up skipping thursday utility because i was exhausted. wednesday we had a private lesson with chris parker in agility, and berlin did well - some things to work on (Will i ever have the time??) especially in regards to her weave pole entrances and collecting herself. wed utility with rah was more of the same - i know where we need to work on things! thurs i just did berlin in novice - we are still working the basics of bridget stuff right now and charging her "words" but she's doing a nice job.

sunday we matched and rah was too creative in utility (WHO taught him words for the directed jumping and why didnt he need me?) open was a battle of wills (YOU GO WHEN I TELL YOU not when the judge says it), berlin did a nice job in novice tho!!!

checked out a rescue dog and long story short, she wasn't for me.

sending in entries for berlin and rah... so tired!

im still here. still not posting what i need to be posting. but there's so much bridget stuff to post its crazy (and i need to re-read my notes!) but the dogs like the methods right now - they are back at baby dog stuff.

and i cant talk about berlins leg because i havent taken a pic of the course yet!!!!

dogs hiked for an hour today and no one got hurt!!!!

Prey = 80
Pack = 45
Fight = 35
Flight = 10

Prey = 50
Pack = 75
Fight = 65
Flight = 10

Prey = 70
Pack = 40
Fight = 10
Flight = 35

Prey = 20
Pack = 65

home from the seminar

just got back from the bridget carlsen seminar and had a BLAST - so much information and so much of it really makes sense, especially to MY dogs - already incorporating it and my trainers are trying to figure out how to put some of it into class.

exhausted and its been a long weekend, but i will definitely write more later.
