Most people start boot camp programs on a Monday, or January 1st. We like to start our program on a Friday in mid-March in case someone pulls something and needs to rest over the weekend. With Spring upon us, I am hoping to get the boys moving more. They get regular walks throughout the day (on non-Polar-Vortex weeks) however the morning walk has always been pretty low-key. Melvin is not a fast riser in the morning and Jake’s legs don’t always wake-up with the rest of his body. So today we went for a walk to warm-up and then went into the backyard to work on some recall. I made sure the boys were as far from me as possible before giving the command and once I did, they both would come running. Even Jake (in his own wonky-rific way)! We did this for quite some time and when we went in for breakfast, the boys were peppy and limber and happy.
