Tuesdays With Tag - Week Five At Camp...

When we arrived at the ranch on December 28th, Mike let Tag out of the truck and I was surprised by how mature he's looking now. He's nearly nine months old (and I think a little overweight), but his training seems to have contributed to him looking more grown up.

We had so much fun watching Mike take him through his paces, and when they were finished, it was my turn. It was hard not to smile as Tag showed me how much he's learned.

Tag will be graduating on January 14th. Mike and Joann are going to deliver him back to us, and we'll be hosting them overnight for a change.

Rather than use up a lot of words in an attempt to show you how far he's come in his studies, I'm going to share a video from our day at the Ranch. I didn't put this one to music so that you can hear Mike's comments. (It was a windy day again, but the weather was gorgeous for a day of training.) The video lasts less than three minutes, but you'll definitely get a feeling for what Tag's been learning.

Wasn't that fun? I'm looking forward to having Tag back home soon, but there will be one more Tuesdays With Tag before he's her with me again. We saw his "house" training, but I'll save those photos until next week. 'til then...

Donna,
That is truly amazing how Tag is right there with his trainer, waiting for a command. And how he has him
fetch and come back to him, my daughter's dog run to you and tease you and take off again. He looks so happy, too running with 'the pack'.
It's all wonderful!

Yay, Tag! He's doing so well - what a good boy he is. Here's to his pending homecoming - how excited you must be. Happy New Year!

Great video! He is doing so well with his training. It seemed as though when he was fetching he wanted so much to bring it to you.
But, he did not, he took it to Mike. Well done, TAG!

Just wonderful, Donna. Will you need to signal him with a whistle when he comes home? Is he learning hand signals at the same time? You must be so excited waiting to have him home.

I never knew about training camp for dogs but now I can see how valuable it is. Tag is just so cute and doing really great. I can imagine he was super excited to see you on visiting day. Only two short weeks to wait and he will be home again. Happy Hugs...

He's such a clever wee pup. Great video and those black labs look pretty good too. Russell will drool over them when he sees them.
