Default Our own sports victory...

Not agility... but I am very, very proud of the mush puppies today. Fortunately I spotted these deer before they did and got in a good "whoa" and "wait"... and they did awesome.



Squash even sat down to wait until the last deer butt disappeared into the forest...



Once we got started again, he did want to try to pull off the trail at the spot where they had gone into the woods (it didn't help that we could still see them back there), but between Maisy and "leave it" we kept things on track pretty well... for her stuff like this is "out of sight, out of mind, time to get back to work" so she's a lot of help to me. Not a perfect "on by" by ay means, but pretty darn good considering the level of distraction and their relatively novice status.



(Oh and just to nip this in the bud, no they are not wearing choke collars. Those are called limited slip collars and they will tighten only very slightly.)

We will do some skijor fun runs, but most likely not competitively. Definitely have to work on passing before that day comes, too.

What are your two hooked up to in this picture? I am just curious because I see no snow Also, where did you get those harnesses?

That looks totally awesome, I am jealous.

Heheh, The plan was SUPPOSED to be to dry land train last summer and skijor over the winter, but...we barely had any snow all winter! I didn't get on my skis even once. So, more dryland training. I am on this scooter thusly...



And those harnesses are from Alpine Outfitters, but there are a number of places that sell them and a few different styles.
