Coming Along

This morning I took Kort to another Obedience Fun Match. I was very happy with his heeling, we did a Rally Excellent course, & a Open Obedience course, he was focused & did very well.
In Open I did a heeling pattern but no figure 8, a drop on recall, a retrieve on flat, & a retrieve over the high jump. The heeling was awesome, a teeny lag once but sits every time. His retrieve on flat was fast with a crooked sit in front, we are working on fronts :) His drop on recall could be better, he still takes a couple of steps before dropping, we are also working on that. The retrieve over the high jump was not so great, he ran around on the way there but jumped the way back. I did it one more time running with him toward the jump, lots of praise , then that was it!! We packed up & headed home.
It is a fairly nice day so I got home grabbed Tate & went for a nice long walk with the boys .
They are both peacefully sleeping beside me now.
I have to say that I am so enjoying Tate these days. He is doing so well, he is happy & playful & full of life again. It is so sad to think how skinny & sick he was last year before his neuter :(
I can't get enough of watching him as he runs around with Kort, bouncing & playing. It makes my heart happy & I appreciate every moment of it ♥

That all sounds great about Kort. I can't believe you did all of that, came home, walked, then's still light out! Yeah on Tate too. He just looks so great in all the photos you post. And, I love the one of Kort AND I love the new photo at the top!

I'm glad that the match went well!! No sideways ears? How were the set ups?

no sideways ears, set ups were great except for once when we were about to do the retrieve over the high jump, he wandered away, then blew the jump :)
