The most imortant things I learned are that
- Pepper values boiled chicken liver treats more than gizzard treats. After I switched to liver treats, he came to me more readily. I had given Audrey the liver treats because they break up more easily, and because I can put the gizzard treats in my mouth (I love gizzards).
- Pepper will have no trouble jumping12", though we'll continue to practice mostly 8" until he's older.
- Pepper needs a lot of flatwork at home before doing much sequencing.
- Maxie has forgotten how to do the exercise spontaneously,without any direction like he used to do. We'll have to work on that.
Here's the video, about 8 minutes. The whole exercise took about 15 minutes with both dogs. The weather was low 80's, nice and cool, and mostly in the shade.
Next I'll post the Dog Walk Relays we did the same day after a brief rest.
Upwards and onward!
