    Lighter weight canvas bumpers with flags, they don't seem to get buried as deep in the snow and don't get hard enough to break teeth. Always gotta watch out for slippery spots the ones you can see and the ones under the snow.

    I wonder if you could use a handwarmer wrapped with some neoprene around the electronics to keep them warm?

    Just did some great lining drills and obedience work in a grade school parking lot. Home in time for football. Did a fun search for winter training on the RTF here. Never realized the color of the socks I was wearing would make a difference. 😎

    I pour a glass of wine, sit by the fire, read a good training book, and think about drills for April.

    If there is no cover on the ground I don’t throw marks and will do a lot of blinds and drills.

    Plow the snow away. I don't want my dogs running thru snow that could cause an injury.

    That would make one serious pile of snow in the places I train
