this one has pushed and pushed me to the very brink of mental meltdown somedays
he's very intelligent, perhaps too smart in some ways. his saving grace is..he is a working lunatic. he's farther along towards his IPO1 after only 8 sessions in bitework than some dogs that have gone to club every week since 8 weeks of age. we just need to tidy up the blind search and tighten up the back transport in protection..obedience...wellllll...we have a ways to go yet..send out needs finishing..retrieves need to be chained together and finished up..tracking? he just needs more miles put on him..great nose..just fast! we'll get there..no hurry..trialling is on hold just due to the old guy..don't want to be away from him for more than 8 hours at the most..so..we'll work towards our IPO3 and trial when the timing is right. no rush
