FitDog Friday~Ducks and Pink Bumpers

This weekend we did some land and water training, the dogs were getting fit in both venues. Today’s pictures were taken on our land training. We used ducks on the marks and then pink bumpers for the blinds.

For the most part when training and running marks the dogs do several sprints and then a long run-hunt may happen when they lose track of where the bird went. With blinds there may be several starts and stops with pivots to get their next cast. So they are working several muscles and doing several types of fitness when out training.

    Hunting is some serious exercise for both the brain and the body! No wonder the SS Chessies are so fit. Great photos! I always love to see the action shots.
    Happy Friday,

    Great photos! Hard to believe it is still brown and fall-like there 🙁 We finally have real spring weather and it’s hard to not be outside all the time!
