Line training with Byker
New gear day. New canicross belt (the foam padded style that was popular years ago), new single towline, and even a running harness for Byker. I'll have to do a bit more of this, canicross style line training just with Byker. as he get's older, it's becoming more difficult to exercise the three dogs together:
Before anyone complains, yes I know that he's a young dog, and I'm certainly not thrashing him - I'm too out of condition for that to even be possible by Cani-X. I hope to gradually get fitter, as he gets older and bigger.
But doesn't he look smart in his new rainbow running harness:
And it's not all work and training. Because he's young, even during these sessions, I let him have a run around, and an explore, while practicing a little recall and basic training. After all, that's the point of having a doggy dog like a pointer cross, rather than a siberian husky. You can throw a stick for them, let them run around, and even expect them to safely recall.
So here he was today, having some fun with a er.. rather large staffie? I'm sure that's what it was, but she was game for some fun with my little Kung Foo Fighter:
