To do this, we don't give him attention or food until he is sitting still and behaving. He then gets treats and attention. He is improving greatly, and only does it during feeding time now. (which we are working on) Other than that, he gets along with everyone and they all like to play with him now and again. He and Velvet have become inseparable, and he idolizes and sleeps by Ghost when he can.
We've only had one good day of mushing this year, and I wanted to see how Velvet could do. Her injuries may sadly prevent her from going on the racing team, which breaks my heart as much as hers. I had to sadly cut short the run and take it very easy on the way back to the house. I will work with her therapeutically solo to see if she will improve, so we will see, but it is unlikely she will be on the team this year. I'm very sad about this, as she is an incredible little dog and I had high hopes she would make as great a leader as her mother, Freya.
So far we are planning on going to Bristol to pick up a new Outlaw rig (new to us), and the Farm Park Challenge part 2. There is a good chance we will also make the Fair Hill Challenge, Mackinaw Mush if they have it, and an as yet undetermined race in February and one in March.
