Week 13

Twelve weeks down (Forty to go)

I have been trying for 10-15 minutes of "class time" per dog, five days a week, but kid-stuff is now consuming a full two days and will likely continue to do so until some time in May.

Zachary starts Canine Good Citizen class this week, so there goes another day. And if that isn't enough, I have a rush job I'm working on throughout April.

Oh dear.

Accomplished Last Week:

Core Studies: Continued work on down-stays during Find The Duck.

Canine Good Citizen: Did a Meet 'n Greet at the library. Failed to meet many people (see Blog below) but was able to work on many other things (noises, dogs, patience...) so all was not lost - although it appears Zachary's sit-stay was.

Dance: Tried Change Of Pace On The Road - not pretty.

Blog: Meet 'n Greet-less

Videoed: TL 4 - Down Stay (On The Road!),  TL2 OTR - Distance 2', TL2 OTR - Target.

Released Videos: Zachary Training Levels Four (Down-Stay)

Planned for Next Week:

In light of the severe time restraints during the week, I'm going to focus on weekend outings and On The Road activities. I'm also going to make as much use of lunchtime Find The Duck as I can by working to rebuild Zachary's duration sit-stay (both distance and out of sight).

We'll also work on Canine Good Citizen items during the weekly Quiz.
