For a few months now Flash's immaturity has been showing big time in tracking. What was once a very intense, focused, and deep nosed puppy became a rushed, haphazzardly tracking just enough to get to the end rebelious adolescent. This morning it just clicked with him. He did phenomenol, was back to his old self and on the most difficult track he's done in a while. I lost the track a couple of times which in the last several months would have spelled disaster but HE showed me where the track was. And to top it off there was a police officer watching the whole time and when we were done the officer just had to come talk with me because of how cool the tracking was! The officer was very impressed and couldn't stop talking about Flash's looks and temperament and training, even compared him to Dar, our town's police dog (huge compliment, I've met Dar and he is gorgeous with an amazing temperament).We then did some obedience, again with the officer looking on, and Flash was perfect with awesome, awesome drive! It's been a great day so far.I just hope he doesn't forget it all tomorrow. Don't you just love this "awesome today, forgot it the next day" stage?
