Getting ready for Christmas

We love this time of year! It’s so festive and the cooler weather is awesome! Special treats for holiday boarders…made with love & care!

Rosie Graduates

Yesterday Rosie & I went to Sykes Lake for a new adventure! We walked a mile, saw ducks & geese, runners & bikers and little kids. It also became clear to me yesterday that Rosie’s journey is obviously well known…a lady was walking and said “looks like Rosie is making progress” (said something like that) and I realized that a lot of you have been following Rosie’s journey! Well tomorrow Rosie will graduate and will return to Midland! I will be sorry to see her go as she has been a great companion going everywhere with me I could possibly take her. Is Rosie perfect…no she’s not but this sweet girl has made huge leaps & bounds and I couldn’t be happier with her transformation! I can’t wait to train with her parents, they will be so excited!

Rosie’s Journey

Today Rosie & I met a friend for lunch at the Open Table! There were several tables filled, construction going on across the street (loud) and we even had a lady show up with a large bird on her shoulder (only in Henrietta). We were there for 1.5 hrs and the last 45 mins she laid there calm and restful. This is exactly what this girl needed! Much progress was made today!

Gunny- Life of the Party

Gunny takes training in the training room very serious, but he is the life of the party when out with his friends!

Ace Graduates

Ace wasn’t a fan of the bath. BUT what he doesn’t know is that he will be graduating gun dog training today! Yay Ace!

Zach & Ziva

I can’t believe Zach & Ziva will be graduating soon! They have come such a long way! Today we trained them together since they are from the same family…and we all know how difficult that can be! So proud of these two!

New Trainee

Please help us welcome this sweet boy to our training program! Trigger has been with us for just one week and boy is he a show off. He works hard for his treats and is showing great progress! I can’t wait to see the end results!

Beginner Gun Dog School

What a good boy Ace is! He is doing great in Beginner Gun Dog School!

Kooper is doing so good…

Kooper working on stay and treat distractions. After being told “No” once he would not even look at the hot dog pieces.

We’re So Proud!

I would like to take a moment and brag…. RW Canine Retreat is blessed to have a great group of college and high school students to work part time at the kennel. This morning one of our high schoolers, Trista, was presented with her 1st Place state UIL ring.
