Kiyo & Toka have had mini-play sessions a couple of times today & yesterday. Since Kiyo is over 4 times his size, and has speed, agility and coordination on her side, I’m very careful to monitor their play. It’s always outside in the fenced yard; food and toys are never around. Happy to state that she likes playing with him, though ‘play’ consists of her bowling Toka over. He’s a good sport & jumps up as quickly as he can, only to get knocked down again.
We tracked at the local park today. Here’s Toka’s session:
He was weaving around a fair amount today. I think it’s because he could not see the targets. He’s slowly learning that if he follows my scent, he’ll find the articles & targets, and therefore his cookies.
Here’s the tiny tot on vacation in NH last weekend. He had a great time walking in the woods, but remembered to check in. Yes, he got plenty of cookies.

I think Toka did a fine job. Since he’s not supposed to see the item but use his nose to find them and he’s all of what? three months old, he’s doing a fine job. In this session he looked less frantic than in others; he looked settled and calm. He’s making wonderful progress.
You are doing great with him but then I never had a doubt!! What a remarkable boy or should I say training team!!
