Introduction to WATER !!! Part 3 of 3

Hi All,

Masters' James & Jenn have been very busy the last few weeks. Of course we are still adorable as ever.

In fact our Masters' love us soooo much, they decided to join the Texas State Park, so that we could experience new and wonderful things.... such as the Guadalupe River.

I know it is hard to believe, but they get up very early on Saturday morning (a day renowned for sleeping in till 1pm and then searching for a place that would offer breakfast at 3pm), pack the Outback with 20 or so towels, water , camera's, leashes, treats, spare cloths etc etc (you would think we are going away on a weeks vacation) and drive up the road to the park.

Well, it was absolutely beautiful and not many humans to distract us from our primary objective.... The River !!!

Here we learned that we can slowly go deeper and deeper into the water and swim, also how to do a U-Turn and swim back to our masters when called.

All in all we had a perfect morning and slept throughout the whole day.



What is a River ??



It's Wet, Gooey and Fun


This is how one paddles and floats...


What to do when Called...



Some positive reenforcement...


Released out again...


Mastering the "swim to me when called"


Sent out Deeper and Deeper


OK.... even you the reader are understanding the repetitiveness of this training technique...


Now... its just goof off time... yeah !!!



No guesses where we are going tomorrow morning !!!!!..... I guess there will be a part 4 after all.
