Cody and I took a 6 mile hike, plus he got to do some swimming. I'm uploading 4 or 5 more in a 2nd post (seems to upload better for me that way)

thanks for looking :)

thanks Renee... I always use high value treats (chicken, hotdog etc) to train "come". I still very very rarely say "Cody Come" unless i have a treat for him. he's doing so well with it, I don't want to ruin it by not have a juicy reward. someday...i'll ween him off.

fun! it's so nice and peaceful to hike with the pup.

also, he's only off lead if i can see a lot of the trail ahead.

LOL....I could have a LIVE chicken....off lead very unreliable recall....but we are a work in progress! Yes, I love being in the woods with Jake, it's so peaceful and he really loves it! The weather is finally cooled off!

Cody looks really good, is a black and tan blanket?

haha, well mr Jake must not be quite as food driven as Cody. I wonder what other rewards you could use to help the recall??? hmm..

yeah, i bet down in AL you've got to wait for the evening to do much outdoors, especially in the summer.

Cody is a sable :)

Very handsome dog, I love the coloring. I would agree that he's a sable but doesn't look like a typical one!! But after posting pics of his mom Im sure he gets some unique coloring from her ;) I wish I had more areas to hike with my dogs but Nebraska sucks :(

Your GSD is very cute! mine has almost the exact same coat which is suprising. I have been confused on what to call her coat also lol if I knew how to post pictures i would put one up lol. I dont know if you come around centeral ohio much but theres a great national park here called Hocking Hills I take Schatzi there almost every weekend she loves it! its full of caves and waterfalls a great place to check out if your ever in ohio.
