I realized the other day that I hadn't done a post about my goals for Kort for this year.
It got me thinking that maybe I wouldn't set any goals this year. If I do, then don't go after them, it gives me anxiety, seriously. I feel like I have let myself & Kort down.
So many times I have started up tracking with Kort, only to stop for one reason or another. It upsets me, makes me feel lazy, like I'm not doing something I should be doing :(
Then I obsess over it, I'll say to myself, "it's such a nice day, you should be out tracking, or training, or whatever." The more I think about it , and the fact that I'm not doing it, the more stress I feel.
So I'm not setting any goals this year, I "hope" to get back in the Open Ring, with any luck I will be going to Medicine Hat in May. I have been training in bits & pieces. Sometimes we will be out on a walk & I'll call him to heel. I always take the opportunity to use my "watch" command when I see another dog coming, Kort is getting much better at watching me instead of screeching at the other dog :)
I "hope" to get Kort's last leg in Intermediate Standard Agility, & his last leg in Intermediate Jumpers Agility this summer. Of course I will need to get back into training, I stopped training Agility after our last trial in August. If I do get back to training, super, if not, oh well, I just won't trial, the world won't end. ( I hope )
After all, Kort couldn't care less, now I just have to tell myself not stress about things so much as well.
