Kona has her bad habit of counter surfing that we are still working on, but all and all they are really great dogs.
I've been working on several things in my down time. Most of it has been to make my training better for everyone else. I have been wanting to make an online portion of training for a long time. There are things I feel that are really important to teach that we just don't have time to go over when we are
I have had a bit of a break I've taken a couple days to myself and I need to get in the habit now of taking at least two days a week to myself and trying to practice self-care. I do feel better than I have a long time, I feel as if I may be coming out of my burn out. I just don't want to see myself fall back into it as soon as this is virus is over if I go right back to doing the same things. Working 7 days a week, 13 hours a day. I have to learn some healthy boundaries so that I have more to give to my family, friends, and clients.
I had fun going out and working with Kona and Yadi while Ian played on his swing set the other day. I took Kona though the weave poles and she was actually pretty good at them. Yadi likes them and wanted a treat too. I need to work with him sitting and staying while I work with her, and vise versa.
I still need to work on Kona's Novice and Intermediate trick titles. Hopefully, I will get around to that this week.
