Too many dogs to work ?????

During a discussion with Wally last night, I realized that it’s a good thing that I don’t have young dog in the sidelines chomping at the bit wanting to work.  For the most part, I don’t have enough work for more than one dog.  I am now confident that Fern is going to be able […]

I came to the important realization that Fern’s issues (her wilting daisy routine) are management issues, quite similar to those I had early on with Gel.  Luckily I worked through them with Gel and I feel that I can get through Fern’s current mindset.  Just as I did with Gel, I let her quit.  I […]
