We went to go work with the Christmas decorations while his dad was shopping. Max alerted to a dizzy episode coming, I knew I was close to Austin just not sure where he was so I had Maximus find him. You can see Max looking down isles but ultimately he knew where he was without looking. You can see right before he turns down the isle he checks in with me. One issue Max has with guide is how excited he gets for this task, he gets so excited when he sees Austin that he pulls a little, this has been corrected from when we first started when he would run, now you can see he picks up speed a little but slows down and rechecks in on me. Ultimately I’m proud of this boy!! (Disclaimer I’m the one putting pressure on his leash and harness I tend to when I get anxious and don’t notice until later). .
Sorry for the lack of activity lately, things have been hectic. Turns out training two puppies at the same time for IGP is a lot on my plate. We’re putting in work though, Marek has started dumbbell holds and we’ve really been drilling that active/engaged heeling. Fallon is doing great with her foundation training. I’m super pleased with both of them, even if they make me question my sanity multiple times throughout the day. In other news, I thought I would introduce the latest addition to my pack to y’all. This is Sprocket, a 3 year old bully breed mutt. He was my boyfriend’s dog, and when I moved in I kinda took over (sorry Austen 🙈). He is the biggest cuddle bug, gets along great with the other three dogs, and has so much personality. You probably won’t see as much of him posted, kinda like Riley, because I want to keep this account sport focused, but I’ll sneak him in every now and then. Hope everyone has a great week! ❤️ ___________
I had my 6 week check up today after my Hip Replacement... And the vet is so happy with how it’s healed! Everything looks perfect. I’m allowed to go on short 15 minute walks to help build up the muscle in my legs. When mum and dad aren’t home I still need to stay in my crate, in case I hurt myself. But I’m so excited to have a little more freedom, and this is the best news we could have asked for. Mum and Dad are over the moon.😍 #sunnythesablesjourney
