Chispa update – a year!

It's been a year since Chispa was born! I can't believe she's a year old already. Although I was gone for a couple of weeks recently, she didn't seem to have suffered from the lack of formal training. Of course I worried she'd forget everything she'd learned to date…nah…!

We are now in training for weave poles, contacts, jumps, and handling. It's a full plate, to be sure, and so I have been doing a lot of station training. Chispa is pretty smart, and PLAY is the name of the game for her. If it's not PLAY, she's not interested. Food…eh. She'll do things for food, but she really lights up if we are hardcore playing. And, with the smart part, repetition is not a great way to train if I want a lot of enthusiasm.

So, what do I mean by station training?
