Beach Dog

It was a good day to go to the dog beach Sunday since it was still a little cold and kind of rainy so we didn't have to share the beach with anyone else. Rugby didn't mind that it wasn't quite summer weather yet, and I even have proof!

There are a couple more photos too, here that are mixed in with the Wednesday morning class photos.

I had to reclarify exactly what the go outs were to Rugby today. He was unconvinced that I knew what I was doing and he couldn't figure it out himself with the big archs he was making to get to the other side of the jumps. After much protesting on Rugby's part, I had to back up and put our go out targets at 3ft and at 6ft, then we kept going at this rate untill Rugby was running straight out, lots farther than 40ft. Once he got the idea that if he kept running straight he would keep finding targets, we started working backwards again untill we got halfway and then we stopped. We have to do them lots more this weekend. 


  1. I love those pictures of him at the beach! That one where he's completely off the ground is just fabulous!

  2. Great beach pictures! Especially the "air" one. He looks like he's flying!

  3. Great photos. I think I see a good bath in Rugby's future!

  6. The beach looks great, I wish I could take my dig there,
    although she is more like a cat, I will have to drag her into the water.
    Where is this place?
