She is in standing heat now and it's her first heat at 12 months. She has been a stellar dog to train - except for today!
We did a "multiple guns in the field" marking drill, not anything more difficult than she is used to. Did great on first two marks. On third and last mark, she swooped up the bumper and then decided to take a scenic tour of the far side of the field before returning to me at the line. It was as if she went a little crazy.
She has always been 100% fast going to mark and returning to line. My jaw dropped when she did this. Needless to say, we packed up our gear.
Is this a common thing with girls in heat? Seems understandable to me, but wondered about other's experiences.
