We finally got out to work sheep this evening after days of afternoon rain and slippery mud. I was afraid we’d be stepping back a few steps after a 5-day layoff but once again, Moss surprised me. He just picks up where he left off the last time.
We worked on a down stay so I can get in front of the sheep. I’ve worked him maybe 4/5 times on teaching him to stay and he did it right in front of the sheep. Whata boy! He is really one smart little dog.
He is learning both directions although come bye is his better side. He’s still fast but once in a while he slows down on his own. I can’t wait until we can go again in the bigger pen. I think with another dog to hold the sheep we’d be fine now.
