More video

Last weekend I met Jen and Donna for a training session. We worked the adult dogs for 2 hours and then got the puppies out to play. Jen filmed Soleil doing a couple of restrained recalls and some flatwork.

I have the planks ready to begin Soleils running contact training. I can't believe she is going to be 7 months old this weekend!!!

I've begun proofing her stays with distractions and so far she has done very well. This morning we went to Mary's house and Soleil had good solid sit and down stays while Mary was working and playing tug with Tangle (6 month old BC puppy) about 20 feet away.

How fun! Puppies grow up way too fast. My boy Jet should be ready to compete this spring!

Wow! It doesn't seem that long ago when I first met Jet at the trial in SLC, Utah. I can't believe he will be showing soon!

Soleils doesnt look like a puppy anymore. She is looking very good!! Diana

Priscilla said...

Wow! Soleil's recalls are wonderful!

Soleil has such beautiful attention and you can tell howmuch she loves to play with you and how interesting she finds you, she looks soooooo good, you should be really proud of how beautifully she is doing! You guys are going to be some team in another year! Cant believe how time flies and that Soleil is already seven months old, how did that happen?

Soleil can't be 7 months already?!!!

She is looking very good with her recalls and foundation work! Gosh, in no time she'll be ready for jumps and contacts!

I hope you video some of her running contact training - I'd love to see it!
