The youngest dogs in training have just turned one year old: Cayenne and Champ. They have coloration and body structure similar to their Mother, Nutmeg. But their spunk and 'get up and go' is from their Father, Nacho. These two yearlings are about 2 months younger than the Fire Litter.
Cayenne is smaller and racy. She is super confident around other dogs. She was nervous at the first introduction of a harness. Moira even had to carry her as a 'lap dog' for a short distance. But, Cayenne's comfort level in harness is now perfect - she'll even put her head up when we approach her with a harness. We are VERY excited about this Gal.
Champ is tall and leggy. He is a talker and will scream and howl with excitement. Champ had no hesitation when first introduced to a harness. His only original issues was an 'oral fixation' with the main line. Dogs are not allowed to chew but he learned his manners rather quickly. Champ pulls extremely hard in harness so we will have to work on pacing him as the season continues. So far Champ looks fantastic.
