guard dog training

Just a quick and simple shot this week. I was out in the rain photographing the Western Regionals for French Ring all day yesterday and am trying to edit shots today and the rest of the week. What a great trial! Some really accomplished dogs and trainers. I recalled when Grimm & I first started training in French Ring. One of the exercises that distinguishes, at least for me, French Ring from Schutzhund is the object guard. In training and trials, the object is typically a basket and the dog is supposed to keep the decoy from taking it. Well, I didn’t have basket when I started training so The Grimm learned the “objet” command in my living room with this same tool box. Obviously, she remembers how it works. =)
