Tonight’s training was all about tender touch. When on the table, my daughter has the tendency to manhandle Teddy, using her full hand instead of finger tips while stacking him on the table. He is a lot smaller than he appears – That coat makes him look double his size! Of course, Teddy is an attention whore and loves all of the manhandling. But in the ring, she needs to use a tender touch.
Now on the other hand, KC was in rare form tonight. Very alert and in-tuned with every sight, sound and smell. She even growled as other dogs approached! I think I best get her back into the practice ring soon – We have our next show weekend next month!
