Apparently my plan to post to the blog more frequently hasn't come to fruition. I have kept up with my training goals. Wes is doing well on the choreography for his Elite Performer title. I need to do some work on the props we will need for the video. His Team 1 is probably ready to video. We just got back into herding so that required some new goals. If only housework and yard work didn't interfere with just playing with the dogs.

I stuck to my training goals yesterday. I had set up an area in my training space to work on the Team 1 and I was pleased that the set up worked well. I did a run through of the exercises to see where we were and Wesley nailed it all. I need more practice with moving from exercise to exercise and it involves resetting equipment. I decided I would start adding some Team 2 exercises into the practice sessions. We also did about 10 minutes of practice on our Elite Performer. I think the choreography I have planned is going to work very well.

I have allowed my blog to just sort of fade away but now I have decided to use it to track my training and competition activities. Starting tomorrow I will be doing a 28 Day Challenge to put in 5 minutes a day working on Wesley's Team 1 title. I also have a goal of spending 10 minutes a day creating and filming his Elite Performer title. Any extra time I can fit in will be to video his Level 5GC submissions for his ADP Grand Championship. I am retired so one would think I would have nothing but free time but it just doesn't always work that way. This fall we hope to add some Barn Hunt and Scent Work titles and get to working on a CAX2 and FCAT 2. Wesley currently has 47 titles. My dear friend Carla Baker has a blog that is going to be my model. Check it out at http://atozdals.blogspot.com I am also going to throw in some training ideas and tips so please feel free to comment on my posts. Here is a picture of Wesley running Fast CAT.
