Gerty has been practicing her long distance recall and check ins, in high distraction environments like the beach.  We walk down to the ocean a couple days a week around 5:30 am.  I release her, she goes for a burn, I walk quickly or jog in the opposite direction, stop and call out “Here!” when she’s about 400 feet away.  She comes flying back!

She also has gained enough confidence to swim, full out swim paws in a paddle, totally awesome!!!!!
