For our last week of #K9Kamp our backyard fitness was the Sand Spring gang doing the star drill. The star drill is a drill used for handling retrievers. It is 5 posts set up in a star formation and then you put bumpers by each post. You have the dog by your side and you line the dog up to the post you would like them to go to and you send them at that direction. If they are going to the wrong post you handle them by blowing your whistle and making them sit then you give them a hand signal and get them going in the right direction. You can then have them pick up a bumper and as they are coming back you can blow the whistle and make them sit with the bumper in their mouth and you can give them a hand signal and send them to another post. This keeps you in control and teaches them that they have to listen to you when you are handling them.
Here is the set up.
Glory was first up.
Of course we couldn’t have our backyard fitness fun with out the help of the Kat Counselor.
The SS gang had a great three weeks at Kamp thank you to our host for another fun Kamp!
