So here's some pretty snow pictures of Dodge for the bright side of winter. Also the cardinals are really having a feast at the bird feeder just outside.
Dodge got to work sheep in the snow today and he's doing very well switching between walk up and then going around on a flank. I am still very close to him to keep him walking straight and then make the flank a nice one. I think the intensive walk up work in the smaller pen will help him with confidence in driving. He likes to fetch a lot more than drive but he's getting more comfortable with driving all the time. His downs today were very snappy and quick stopping on or off balance- that's great to see. Sometimes he'd even drop when I just said "stay" which is my standing stop command.
Dodge is Birch Hollow's Built Ram Tough (Ruff Stock Grey Badger x WTCH. Birch Hollow's Red Hot Cinder).
