All Natural Jumps

We showed up for last weekends hike with Team Applewoods a little late. Rugby still had plenty of energy when the big dogs started to slow down from all their playing, swimming and training. We extended our walk and added a formal training session.


There were lots of fallen trees on this trail, which made perfect Rugby-sized jumps. I was able to practice sending Rugby away from me, calling him back, directing him over different "jumps" and "places," calling him to heel position, random sits and downs and even brief out of sight stays. We had a blast!

When I wasn't looking, Rugby found a pile of leaves to roll around in. A white dog can't have nearly as much fun in the woods if he isn't camouflage.
