Shyla and I did some training games while we were bathed in the sunrise light. She "took a bow", worshiping the sun.
She LOVES our training. This next photo might look the same as the previous one, until you focus on her tail. These two photos were part of a rapid-fire series of photos that I took while she took her bow. The photos show that she wagged her tail during her entire long bow!
We had a great snowbike ride. At the end, I asked her to "wave to me", and she did. I know that it's not the best photo that I've ever taken but I love it anyway because it expresses how much fun Shya and I are having.
Positive training rocks, especially for a sensitive dog like Shyla. It builds her confidence and our bond.
I live at 8200' in the Front Range of Colorado. I love exploring nature
in the mountains while riding my mountain bike and romping with my
Labradors. Photography is another passion, including both "normal" photography and trail camera photography of wildlife.
