    Just some pics I took of Miss Mia's training session today. I'm house/dog sitting so we borrowed my dad's yard, which was an awesome place to search! So many hiding spots. We did 4 rounds of 4 hides, so 12 in total. Mia has a mock trial on Tuesday. We have to perform well, she finished with the fastest time at our last mock trial. lol

    I brought the wrong lens for this so everything is very zoomed in. Sorry!

    Mia and my tin of birch.

    Terrible photo, but look at this stay! If you've been around here a while you know stays are not Mia's forte.

    This one was impressive in real life. She got to about 15 feet away then just booked it right to it.

    I wanted to get a video but the lens was so bad because it only focuses in a very shallow depth. Bah. It's fun to watch though. Sometimes you see their head just snap around when they catch the scent.

    Thanks!

    She did really well switching over to odor. She LOVES this game so much. I think she likes it more than even agility. Are y'all still working on it, too? We're aiming to start trialing in the fall. They're having an ORT here in.... september? I believe.

    I need to get back into training it, and behaviors in general, tbh. I do eventually want to trial but it's not a super high priority at this point.

    LOL.

    Math major? Me?

    How embarrassing. We did 12 hides outside. 3 rounds of 4. I cannot type.

    She is very very serious and it keeps that little mind going (and doing good things instead of bad, too!)

    I have a whole flash drive of videos now! I need to find out how to upload them and pick a decent one. My trainer films our training sessions a lot of times.

    Nosework is definitely awesome. I somehow managed to sign up Summer for an intro class.

    Mia was the fastest time for 3/4 of our elements tonight! Yay Mia!
