Thanks for the feedback. Yes, nothing short of fun with Haggis…that’s kind of how he got his name!
Really excited today as he has held a 5 second sit and rewarded before he moved a muscle. Brain must be starting to re-engage. He has also started to give me his toys on the cue ‘thank you’. All big strides with him. Both are going to be useful out in the orchard.
Only a few of my clients have productive truffle orchards but all of the owners escort us around, just in case we locate truffle, especially if it is their first. This adds to the stress of the search, for me, which is why I work so hard on having a loose leash. Try and keep the stress from going down the line to them when they are working.
All good fun though.
