Three Chesapeake Relay

When we are out and about just messing around the gang ends up doing the three Chesapeake relay. What is the three Chesapeake relay you ask, well it is when there are no rules, no training technique going on and the dogs can do what they want when I throw a bumper or two or in this case three.

Gman, Nellie and Glory all have a bumper.

Glory says "I got my bumper".

Glory says “I got my bumper”.

And the relay starts.

And the relay starts.

Nellie goes in for the hand off.

Glory hands it off.

Nellie decides she is done with this game.

Glory goes for the bumper.

Gman is hot on her tail.

Under Glory he goes.

na na I got it.

I still have mine.

I see one here.

Come get mine, I dare you!

The collision.

And the turn around.

And the turn around.

If I don't get a bumper I will make a crazy face.

What usually happens is Nellie will steal the bumpers and run off with them and make her own pile, Gambler will get to them the fastest so he swipes them all first and poor Glory just gives them up and she isn’t a fighter.

  1. How fun that they all play with the same thing. We don’t play much at all with toys outside, just chase and wrestle with each other. They sure are having a blast!

  3. I would get a television if someone would broadcast 3 Chesapeake relay.

    BTW, is unstructured play with the bumpers part of keeping their formal retrieving work strong? Or is it just good for fun?

  5. I think it’s great that it’s not always all about the training, and sometimes you just get out there and have fun!! You always get such great photos too!
