Ice continues to perform well – his focus me is also getting better.
There are a couple of things that still need some work, he’s not running as far to the end of the Teeter as I would like and his dog walk performance is beginning to get a little lacks, which is something I’ve probably caused. I need to be much stricter only reward average or better runs.
In a bid to increase his speed, drive and motivation I’ve sign Ice up for a long distance learning class with Katarina Podlipnik – class starts next Monday and lasts for 12 weeks.
I’ve also decided to train Sky and Ice in the same class at IADW on Wednesday evenings – ultimately this will mean one less trip to Sumner each week but for now Ice will continue his Monday classes.
Here is a video of Ice running this years EO large dog finals course. He did a pretty good job of this considering how old he is.
