Ok, so what do all of you that have to work during the daylight hours do for training your field dogs in the fall/winter. In the past, I have just trainined comp. obed. and agility and it was very easy to find ways to keep training either indoors or in the backyard. I have my first dog that is training for HT and she will be coming home for Oct-mid Jan. for the hunting season. Yeah, we will still get to go up for lessons once a week but what can you do during the week when it is dark when you head to work and dark when you come home. I have been trying to identify some lit up areas that might be large enough to do some drills but not finding too many. We will make the most of the weekends but still trying to figure out how to maintain the training daily. Or do you just have to back off?
Any thoughts from those of you that have been in the same predicament will be most apprecitated! Sorry if this sounds silly but I just don't want to lose the momentum.
