With just a few minutes before dark I realized that I bought a pretty cool quail dummy at Bass Pro a few weeks ago and forgot all about it! Just for fun, I added some quail scent and hid the dummy for Winnie to find.

Well, quail-in-a-bottle may or may not smell like Actual Quail, but Winnie humored me and excitedly found the dummy. Her reward was playing fetch with it, which she LOVED!

I have to say, I don't really know what I'm doing, and Winnie may or may not know what she's doing, but what I've noticed in recent weeks is, she is extremely excited about our little training sessions. And that just has to work in our favor.

Much of our 'field' training we've been doing in the back yard, opposite the fenced-in front yard where they spend most of their outdoor time. So any time I get her and we head in that direction, she just gets really psyched! We're keeping it fun, and working at something - even just a few minutes - each day.
