So I thought it only fitting to share some photos of the trainees that have been taking up so much of my time. I hope to do more in depth posts of some of them with more photos and info on training each.
Here are a couple sneak peaks
Zeus, a chocolate pit… some of you have already heard a bit about him
Jasmine, a street dog from India
Mickey, a “red” Golden Retriever
There you have it, 4 of 13 dogs that have come through over the past month for training. Our training program is a 4 week stay for these pups, so I get to know them pretty well by the end of things. More to come about each as time allows. I hope everyone has had a nice weekend thus far, it was another hot one today, but 2 dogs got to go home today so it was a successful day.
This week wasn’t all dogs though, we managed to get to the river twice (to fish and swim the dogs)… and even enjoyed an evening of fishing at the pond above.
(Photo courtesy of my iPhone. I have 359 photos on mine, compared to the Mr.’s 48… can’t stop a photographer I guess )
A happy remainder of the weekend to all.
What a great job you have! It sounds like you are having a great weekend as well. Enjoy!
Whatever the joke you told Koda was he seemed to find it very funny 😉
I should have put a better photo up of him, I meant to write something about “you know those people you take pictures of that always seem to close their eyes or blink? Koda is one of them”… he is such a puppy through and through, but as such is pretty darn happy too
Beautiful photos of the dogs — definitely can see how they are your inspiration!
thanks, I saved the best of each (sort of) for their individual posts to stay tuned. They indeed inspire me too, gotta find inspiration in the every day to stay sane. Thanks for stopping by
Beautiful pond! Oh the 2 brown dawgs are jealous. The river by our cabin finally stopped ragging and the 2 brown dawgs got to swim in it for about 5 seconds. The reason being that the mosquitoes down there were horrible and attacked the human walking them…lol…they beat it out of there pretty quickly. Always something.
The pictures of the dogs are great. We would love to hear more about them and their training.
Not our pond, it’s part of a sod farm we have access to. I need to make a point to get over there more often this summer/fall to start conditioning the dogs. I’m glad the mosquitos here are not any worse than they are, I hate them though the dogs don’t seem to get hit too often. I think them moving so much helps. I saved the best pictures of the dogs for the individual posts… wondering if I should have given the best as sneak peaks. Ah well, stay tuned
I will be interested in seeing more about the training.
