20 weeks old yesterday.

We can walk up to any body of water now and do this. First time she had been here.

Been working on recall and we turned the corner today. Ditched the check cord. Things are going to get really fun now that I have some brakes on the race car.

I would say she is a work in progress. In all areas.

Has a decent off switch in the house in the evenings if she has had a good afternoon run. She lives in a kennel run beside Spud now as of a week ago, so is in the house in the evenings 2-3 hours, but outside or in training with me twice a day otherwise. Still in need of some more timely and convincing corrections to address sneaking dish towels off the counter and then off to the races, she will get up and trot around when she needs to pee but if you don't get her outside she will find a remote corner otherwise ...

She is a handful when you turn her loose in the field right now and gives me some heart in my throat moments regularly. She is very strong willed and has potential to be a really nice dog if I can develop and mold it correctly. She makes me evaluate my training plan and approach daily.

Dog training is a bit like sculpting...know what to take out and what to leave in, is certainly an art form.

If you don’t own a horse you better get one. Keep the videos coming.
