Carter Moving at 10 Months
« on: November 25, 2010, 07:52:52 AM »
Wasn't sure where to stick this. It's Conformation, but this was more of a training session for us. We're working on getting him to keep his head up, stop racing (he's trying to tuck butt and run) and trying to figure out the appropriate speed to move him at (still not getting it correct--in the down and back in my second post below, you can see that he's moving wide in the rear).

After his last show, and seeing him drop his head, bear into his collar and try to tuck butt and run around the ring with his handler, we've started cracking down and getting out there to work on this stuff more.

Overall, I'm very happy with what I'm seeing here. Now we just need to figure out speed and get him to do it around lots of distractions, and finally in the ring, which will just entail time, maturity and more training. Getting him to keep his ears forward would be the icing on the cake, but I'm sure will come with confidence and time. :)

LOL, Sarah! I'm not sure if that means that you like him or that I'm doing a crappy job of handling him!  :laugh4:

Thanks guys! I'm very happy with how he's growing up and am sitting on my hands to keep myself from pushing him before he's ready. :P
