If anyone of you gets to take a clinic from John Carter, do it! I just attended a two day clinic at Foss and Jen's and it was super. Highs and lows but all the dogs / handlers showed improvement right away. And anyone who can go through an entire day with four sheep and not have the sheep stressed at all, is pretty experienced. I got to watch a Greater Swiss Mt. Dog work and she was really good. She got more and more turned on by the movement of the sheep and more and more focused. And.... bonus... my dog didn't injure any sheep but did grip more than a few times.
According to David Spence, we have two good days of weather before it turns cold and messy again, so this weekend will be dedicated to graveling runs and digging up flowerbeds. And cleaning out the garage and organizing the agility shed, and trying to repair the soft crate that has holes in it, and making a new cover for each of my cloth broad jumps. And working with the dogs.
Better get at it.
