My wife Holly came to BAD RAP class with me on Saturday and took a few pictures. Here are some photos. You'll notice quite a lot of doggie tongue in the pictures. Saturday was sunny and hot, and it can be easy for the dogs to lose focus in the heat. Azul had been spacing out on me the past couple of classes, but this week I brought a canister of water for some extra hydration and a nice cool rag to sponge him off between drills. He had a lot more focus and did really well - his best class since the weather got hot.
Me with Azul:
Don't let the BAD RAP folks see this one, I would be in a bit of trouble. This is not exactly the dog behavior we are striving for...
Pony Boy and Sue (now that Avea has been adopted, Pony Boy is my wife's favorite):
DeAnna and Mercedes:
Just so there is no confusion or alarm, DeAnna and Sue do still have their torsos, heads, and arms. But you can't blame the camera for gravitating towards these good-lookin' dogs! And that is some textbook leash-holding on display. There were some other BACS residents braving the heat - Hercules, Albert, Boots, etc.
