It is Wed and that should mean bird day

But today it doesn't. We were going to take a couple of Phezzies out and work Gunner but some stuff came up. So we will try to get out there on Fri. Did a fairly nice run this morning and he minded better on the collar than the harness. Also will be working on the Table later. His whoa/wait is getting pretty good on the table. Enough so that if I put him up there and drop the ball on the floor I can walk away and he won't move to get it until I say to. I have still having to treat him to get the ball. Heck with the treats he literally spits the ball at me. So we will just keep at it. I am still worried about his NA. I keep telling myself that it is an Ability test and he is not supposed to be trained or totally broke. Then I hear how great someone else is doing and broke their puppy was for his/her test and I get worried. I try not to worry about it too much after all it is not like if I don't do as well as I want they will take Gunner to a better trainer. I just want him to do as well as he can and I know he is just a great pup.

Did the Table work. He did really well and "Wait" until I released him to either get the ball I threw or just to come. Did use the cucumber, carrot and tomato treat to get him to "Give" the ball. Hoping tomorrow to get some water work done.

This is a pic of Gunner after he put himself on the Table yesterday.
