Blind Retrieves In Snow~FitDog Friday

Last weekend the temperature warmed up to the mid 30’s, finally warm enough to do some training. We decided to run 3 blind’s with the dogs. Blind’s are retrieves done without the dog knowing where the bumpers are and have to be guided with a whistle and hand signals, unless the dog “lines the blind” then it doesn’t need any help at all. We like them to need help as it is good training for a hunt test.

Glory was up first.

Sitting getting ready for her release command.

And she’s off.

John gave her a left hand back.

She went a little to far to the left. Need to do a right hand over now.

Right hand over.

Got it!

The return.

Gambler’s time.

Gambler lining up.

And he’s off.

The return.

Glory needing a break in the snow.

Gambler doesn’t seem to tire but Glory on the other hand need a little more exercising to get in shape. She came back from her last blind and had to lay down and take a moment in the snow. Mind you the closest blind was 150 yards out and then the other two were over 200 yards.

  1. I’m glad you got a break in the weather and were able to get out there! Poor Glory. When I’ve been out walking in all that snow I’m reminded that I’ve gotten out of shape too! LOL

  2. Hi Y’all!

    According to my Humans’ nephew, who transferred from the southeastern mountains to WI a couple of years ago, y’all are a little short of snow this winter…which makes him very happy. If y’all keep gettin’ temps in the 30’s, you won’t have any snow.

    Y’all come on by,
    Hawk aka BrownDog
