Stihl

Wears the Blaze Orange Collar

Our puppy update is long overdue. We cannot tell you how happy we are with our beautiful boy. He is incredibly smart and is learning is jobs at home quickly. He immediately loved doggie day-camp and even as a small puppy he fearlessly played hard with the big dogs. He is extremely brave and tenacious. It has been so much fun to watch his personality develop. We have been using the ‘learn -to-earn’ method of training for basic obedience and it has been awesome for establishing a happy relationship with Stihl. These pictures span a couple months, so you can see his progress. We favor a blaze orange collar since his blue coat seems to disappear into the background.

Matt has been gradually working on hunt training. This fall Stihl at just four months old retrieved his first bird. Stihl is also doing very well with endurance-dog training. It only took a few rides for him to lean to stay away from the horses feet and he has not yet been stepped on! We love how bonded his is to us. Even out with the horses, Stihl is always ‘checking in’ to see where we are, and looking for his next command.

We’ll try to have another update to you soon since there is so much progress in so short a time span. I remember Cliff mentioning he is planning a springtime bird training session at the farm. We’re definitely interested in attending, so any information on that would be appreciated.

Thank you again for such a wonderful addition to our family.
