Training Day #2

Day #2 went really well! Dalton is starting to warm up to Arizona even more. He let her set a little closer and was petting her a little more. We are super excited and happy with how he is accepting her just 2 days in.

Tomorrow will be our first tracking experience. The trainers will be running the dogs for the first couple of go rounds but I'm excited to see Arizona in action! This was a major reason for us to get the dog so we are wanting to see it first hand.

Tomorrow will also be the first day that Arizona gets to come back to the hotel with us. We brought her crate home tonight and a few other supplies for her. We are excited to see how everyone reacts to the dog being with us ALL the time.

Dalton amazes us everyday with his ability to adjust and change for the situation at hand. Sometimes we forget that our worries shouldn't hold him back or dictate what he can or cannot attempt. We try to prevent every meltdown or tear or bad day and sometimes if we just step back and let life happen it will be OKAY. He will adjust and accept. Not always by any means but so many times he surprises us with the things that he just accepts!

Today we were talking about how much more he is talking. I'm not sure why we are still surprised when he spouts off some big sentence but we are. We don't always know what he is talking about but he is trying to communicate so much more! We are very thankfully for the fact that it's improving.


Matthew 17:20 NKJV--So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
