1. All seemed to be going ok. She went past the MISPER who I could see from the track. Even when I walked back, she really struggled until the MISPER made a noise.
2. Was probably the best of the four except just before she found the MISPER she found a little food left from the last dog who had made a find.
3. The find was ok but when I went to give Isla food she was over eager and her teeth caught my fingers, I promptly went ouch loudly and another dog pulled from their owner and mayhem ensued.
4. All started going so well until I got into an open field and saw Isla was no longer working and was joining half a dozen springers in the distance. Her recall was spot on and as she returned she wanted to work again especially as she found the MISPER as she approached me. But because I had recalled, the other dog was on route to me so they had a bit of a naughty play. So that one was dashed.
A break in play as we played MISPER which was excellent as Boston trailing followed the scent I left perfectly. Here’s a picture of him being rewarded as we look in. Think Isla wanted the treat.
And then followed up by a couple more blind runaways. These were so much more successful. Had to work with both but made two excellent quick finds. A nice way to end.
Thanks Edwina and Mags.
