If joyriding is a crime...

... then I don't want to enforce the law!

The helper finally discovered what I've been trying to suggest for months - that Nadia enjoys using her body and her speed and she works better when she gets a chance to work off the leash, especially after she has 'won' the sleeve and is allowed to do the typical doberman victory lap/joyriding around the field, rather than just being made to turn in circles on the lead (as many Shepherds are happy to do).

Personally I just love watching her go, too, I get such a kick out of her zooming around at a happy gallop with the sleeve in her mouth.

She keeps improving! I don't know if she will improve quickly enough for the Breed Survey in July, as I'd like to do a BSA but we will see... We also had a great time at the Joanne Fleming Seminar in Vermont, we got an introduction to IGP tracking and we got some very simple yet efficient tips for increasing our precision in our turns in obedience!
