Kris - Showing Progress

Kris is now nine-months old and is coming along really well. Ground work has been done mostly with pigeons and launchers, with the occasional bobwhite and chukar thrown in to keep things interesting. She is standing her birds well and holding most of the time after the flush and shot. Since she was about three-months old she has been worked regularly in the yard; standing on the bench, barrel, and platforms; crating, heeling, and whoaing. She responds to her workouts and training with enthusiasm and has a lot of energy. She is roaded regularly off an ATV and has been run in a few derbies off horseback. Now that chukar season is here it's time to introduce her to some wild birds.
