NAVHDA training days are short for us in the summer, due to the heat. Also, Tessa is still being worked on only one bird at a time, to improve steadiness, so it's a quick event. We worked our bird first thing in the morning, and a little later we followed a seasoned dog into the field to work on steadiness and backing, and then it was off to the pond for a little dock diving session.
Mainly, I just wanted to see if she still likes it after last month's excitement at this very dock. She does still like it. We were trying to get all three dogs to jump at the same time, but G was a little reluctant (she would jump in later).
