Starting our training for a week on the John Muir Trail this summer. It could seem early to start getting ready but with this puppy and her brother it’s never too soon.
Eros and I headed out to REI and after he’d tried it on for size I purchased the first puppy backpack. We then went home and tried it on his sister and she got to be the one to try it out on our hikes over the weekend.
She did wonderfully well with it. Though I’m not sure that she is as motivated as I am about this whole training business. But we are confident that she will not be encumbered by the pack when sniffing is required.
And we all know how important sniffing will be for this goofy girl of mine.
But after some coaxing and simply because she loves her weekend hikes she finally tested the bag at a normal pace. She did beautifully. Next weekend will be her brother’s turn to carry the pouches.
