Meg is my open dog and this will be the first time we have ran in a open field trial together.
Craig is my nursery/ Open Ranch dog
This is Craig's first year of trialing. He has loads of potential just lacks the experience and miles on him. Craig spent the winter with Scott Glen and came back to me a month ago. So we lack experience as a team as well.
One of my smaller fields is sort of workable so I am doing what I can there
Meg needs snowshoes and a snorkel at times.
One thing I have been able to do is condition the dogs. We are up to running 10 km (6.5 Miles) with the quad. I try to do it everyday but sometimes life gets in the way. I have three dogs that run three different speeds.
Craig is right beside me
Isla way out front
And Meg usually trailing if not falling behind.
Isla and Craig often get tired of running Meg's speed. It is boring to them.
The snow banks are still over my head.
I look forward to meeting Robin French and sharing with her how much she stressed me out.
