Lake Lanier, GA
Our last practice with Dixie Dock Dogs before the big event, Pet Fest September 30 - October 2, 2011. Unfortunately, I just realized today that we have been concentrating too much on her jumps (up and out) rather than her run down the dock. She still gives away two feet on the dock most of the time, so what I should have done was work out the paces she needs to jump off the edge of the dock. Oh well, too late for this year - next "practice" will be warm-up at Pet Fest.
Today, she got to wear the e-collar, as she was showing great interest in the ducks across the bay and I learned last time that her recall does not work well in the water.
