Newt: February 18

This week, we continued to work on Flexing, Yielding the Hindquarters (this has gotten much better), Vertical Flexion at the Standstill, Stopping, & Backing. This week, I swapped Bend at the Walk for Figure-Eights as we work on steering & keeping his head level & not over-bent.

He had one little moment this week that he did well at regulating on his own. One of the dogs had been lying in the same spot for most of his session; she got up & walked to another spot while she was in front of Newt during one of our Figure-Eights. As we continued to circle around, she was no longer in his line of sight. When she came back in sight, he had a little heart attack.

Next week, we'll continue working on these exercises, hopefully adding in more trotting & some loping as the snow disappears & the ground dries up a bit. I would really like to head down the lane towards the end of the week, but we'll see where his head is at.
