Fall Back

This has been a work in progress for us. After much practicing Maggie is more in tune to my movements and now sits in much closer proximity to me, setting the foundation for the highly coveted "come".

Drop and Stay

So proud of Maggie.  She's doing very well on her stay.  As we've been practicing over the past couple weeks, I've slowly increased my distance and can now even be out of her direct line of vision.  Go Maggie!

Ups and Downs

Enjoying a warm summer evening we took the opportunity to work in some training exercises.  Practicing up and down on command with Maggie does take time and patience.   As you can see, Maggie isn't a big fan of going into a sit while in a down position.  And some days she's more compliant than others, but and am happy to say we had a much better session last night.

Getting Off on the "Right" Foot

Due to the very hot weather, we continue some of our practicing indoors.  This is a sample of our 'let's go' leading off the left leg; then the 'stay' when I lead off my right.   Maggie seems to be getting right in step though she seems to lag behind a little anticipating my movement.  We were even able to mark a 'come' on the end!

Sunday Maggie participated in her first doggie play session.  She loved it!!!!  As you can see, she was definitely dog tired!
