So how does a FitDog stay fit in this kind of heat??
We do some heeling exercises and directed jumping. We keep the sessions short and fun and Teach comes in just as tired from it. Like he's been out hiking all evening.
The first set of videos is showing some off-leash heeling with focus and doing some Rally moves (backwards, moving then calling to heel, and stand-stay with a distance command in this case down then come). This works his mind which is always good. Our focus is a bit rusty. At the time of the video we actually hadn't been practicing much.
The second set of videos is working on directed jumping which Teach loves. I so wish we lived in an area where Agility was readily available. I do think he would love it. He lights up when he sees me get his jump out. He loves it so much that I do have to do some heeling around it with no jumping so he doesn't try and do an off-course jump in the Rally ring.
