training at the lakehouse
we stayed at a friends lakehouse while our house being tented this week. birdie loved all the open space for running around and the lake has a very gradual slope into the water which made it an ideal place for water retrieval training. birdie has been swimming many times but i have never been able to get her to retrieve a dummy while in the water. first toss at the lakehouse and she looked like a pro. there is some marshy area that she loved tromping around in which is a very good thing because she will be doing a lot of retrieves in that type of cover. she also enjoyed hunting and pointing at dragon flies. what a great pup!
