The dog in the pictures is Smokey. The helper is Walter Wengert from Germany. We had a great time, Smokey scored well in obedience and protection but came up short in tracking. We have some work to do in tracking.
Actually my dog is tracking better right now than he did last summer with the heat and the ants. But some fresh growth with no mud would be nice...I can't wait! Tracking is my favorite phase though, not my dogs
Do you have any photo's of your obedience routine?
At 4 months old he is probably teething. That's around the time they lose their baby teeth. Give him something to chew on like a chew toy or nylabone. He will grow out of it but in the mean time keep him away from anything that you don't want chewed up.
