Hayes had an easy day today. I let him relax on his placemat all morning because I noticed yesterday that he was possibly developing a slight cough. He seemed to be clearing his throat more often than usual. All dogs who come to FSK9 are up to date on shots so I am not worried about anything serious. It is dusty out here and sometimes if a dog isn't used to it it can tickle their throat. Anyway, just in case he had a scratchy throat I let him rest up this morning.
However, the morning was not totally lost. He practiced Place for over 2 hours with very few mistakes.
The afternoon was more or less normal. We practiced all of his obedience and he did not clear his throat at all that I noticed. His obedience is coming along nicely. He gets distracted and forgets to sit maybe 2 of 10 tries. He also still makes mistakes with Down at the side (from te front he is better) but is getting better with every workout.
Tomorrow is more practice and we are also going to take his video and glamour shot because he goes gone on Friday. I am sure his owners will be pleased with his progress. I am proud of him, that is for sure.
