Saturday, October 19th: 3.5 miles, cool/wet conditions, one water break. Lots of ON BY practice thanks to the local deer herd.
A doe who was either very brave or very dumb was kind enough to stay in one place so we could practice ON BY until it worked.
After this run, I realized how much we have matured as a team and how much confidence I’ve gained in myself and my dogs; instead of slinking around, terrified that we might run into some deer/ other people/ other dogs/ cars, I’m glad to see them and welcome them as training opportunities.
Soon, we shall rule the world.
