Etta and Mike live on 20+ acres not more than 7 minutes away from our house. They've developed the land into a perfect training ground for their puppies and dogs. JP goes out there about once a week to work with Gideon, then they practice what they learn at home.
Heading out to plant the birds for Gideon to find
The girls love going to "Miss Etta's" house because there's so much to see and do. They love chasing the birds around, playing around the willow trees, and watching Gideon hunt up his prey.
Miss Etta shows the girls the baby Pigeons in the coop.Etta has dubbed Gideon her "superstar puppy" because he is doing so well. He's exceeding all of his brothers and sisters in every area. At his last checkup he was 33 lbs -- as big as Caleb, our full-grown Wheaten Terrier -- at only 4 months old! He's going to be a BIG BOY.
