8/12 40 minutes for Rocko.

Was a little breezy today and that big shade brim popped off my helmet, hit him in the behind and flew over his head. He had himself a good spook and started to take off but listened to me. His adrenaline goes down faster than mine though! ☺

8/13 - 60 minutes for Rocko.

My friend drove Annie and we ventured out on to the main road and went down that low traffic road. Rocko led the way as I'd driven him there before. Annie was a little nervous at first but was chill by the time we got back. So had a nice morning!

8/19 - 25 minutes driving Rocko this morning.

The AQI was down to 77, which isn't too bad. We were able to canter the new pattern! Still needs work but he's doing it and willingly and we didn't hit any cones. Requires him to keep changing directions so its a great exercise. The wind has come up and the smoke is back this afternoon. The AQI is now up to 157!

We didn't get out til noon today and it started getting pretty warm so we interspersed standing under the oak tree. It was good for us both to be quiet. Much easier than my current puppy training sessions for sure!!!!

My friend was here driving Annie with us this morning. The sky was blue and we had a great time. Now we are socked in with smoke. I have an adventure planned at the horse park for tomorrow so if it's still smokey I'll have to cancel. Feel terrible for the people up in Tahoe with the fire creeping closer. The smoke there is at the hazardous level. Our son is an ER nurse at a hospital in Truckee which is nearby. Ironically he used to be a firefighter.
