We are extremely lucky that our dogs are able to train on such exceptional grounds everyday - the options are as close to endless as you can get, and we're always able to keep the work fresh!
These are some pictures we took at one of our recent training days, and we thought we might post them so you can have a look at what Jessie and Geuse get to see when they go to work. We'll post some pictures of a typical training day with Layna and Keeva soon!
On this day we did two different set ups for water marks, one set up for land marks, two land blinds, and one water blind - a lot of long swims, in and outs, thick/high cover, etc to work through.

(Above) The left mark. They have to swim by the island, cross the road, and go through a thick hedge of cover to get to the mark.
(Below) The right mark - the starting point is to the right of the camera. They have to go down the hill into the mid-left area of the inlet, swim, go across the end of the point, swim to the other side, run through cover, cross the road, go through a thick hedge of cover to the mark on the other side.
Jessie! click on the pictures below to see the progression of one of the marks.
Jason and Alysse Ottinger of Stonebrook Retrievers - we thought this would be a good way to keep everyone updated on what's currently going on at Stonebrook Retrievers. Thanks for viewing!
