When we were at the American Chesapeake Club Minnesota Chessie Day training last weekend the advance dogs could run the technical blind they had set up. A blind is where the dog doesn’t see where the bumper or duck is placed and the handler has to handle the dog to the blind using a whistle and hand signals. The dog needs to stay on as straight as line as possible and it needs to take the correct casts when given a hand signal.
Gambler was the only one to run this blind and you can tell from all the photos he had a hard time with it. After finding out this week that Glory came into heat I now know why his mind wasn’t on his blind. John stuck with it and got it done but it sure wasn’t pretty, and that’s why it’s called training.
John stuck with it, Gambler stuck with it and they finished it. Gambler definitely needs more of these types of blinds so he can be proficient in it.
Now your probably wondering who is having a Birthday?????
Marsh Kitty – MK is having her 2nd Birthday. She had a one kitty party complete with a can of tuna.
Last but not least it is #NationalPurebredDogDay so I need to thank the AKC for recognizing the Chesapeake Bay Retriever so long ago as a purebred dog. Without that I wouldn’t have the breed that stole my heart.
