On 7/14/21, I drove to Rapid City, South Dakota, to hand Calypso to her new owner. I then went on to Boulder, Colorado, with the two pups that were to live there. At this point, I ran into trouble because the fencing in place for the pups was not adequate. The safety of my pups is of paramount importance to me, so I made the difficult decision to bring the pups home with me. More days in the car were hard on that pair of pups, but they are safely home and happy once again.
Traveling with pups is always an adventure. On this journey, that was particularly true because I had three, eighty-pound pups in my Honda CRV. I take lots of breaks with the pups as I travel, so they learn so much on these trips. This trio of pups handled every new experience with curiosity and confidence. They made new human friends all along the way.
As you view the photos and watch the video, I hope you'll see the value of my training program here and the genetic base of my dogs. Taking pups into such novel situations gives me, their trainer, a lot of feedback about how I am doing with the pups. Throughout this trip, I felt proud of the pups. Training such as these pups have had necessitates a considerable time commitment and base of skill.
I hope you enjoy the photos!
