Our First Road Trip
In a few weeks, Sparkle and I head to Clicker Expo in Stamford, CT. This is one of the premiere animal training conferences in the nation and one of the few that allow you to bring your dogs. Usually the whole family goes, but the stars didn't line up this year for that to happen. Fortunately, the two of us are able to go, though.
The timing is serendipitous as it will be about a month before our Cranberry Lake 50 attempt. There are many elements of that trip and our preparations that I'll be able to test and if necessary, adjust. These include:
CRATE WORK FOR ON THE ROAD
We've spent time working on transferring our crate work to the car. She's now at a point where she is remaining calm when I open the door and stays in the crate until I release her.
Sparkle is now accepting a fully loaded pack.
Take a spring adventure with your pup. Check out this article for some ideas.
