NVSDC Bootcamp 2018 - Kit’s first sledding event

Very impressed with the little guy - we did a little bit of stake out training on the back lawn, and one introductory sniff around the caravan, and then we were off, travelling all the way to Ulupna Island, for NVSDC’s Mushing on the Murray Bootcamp.

Kit travelled really well, riding in the berth next to Frankie. We put his bedding and toys in there so he had cuddle items and chew toys - so far, no bed chewing has happened. 🤞🏽

We arrived after dark and woke up to a glorious camp site!

Getting up during the night and first thing in the morning to toilet train a puppy does have a silver lining!

During the next day and a half, Kit spent time on stake out, on lead, or in the caravan. He was a little legend, almost never complaining about being tethered, unlike Frankie!

Meanwhile, we people folk did the Bootcamp thing -

It was an awesome weekend - we just wish the beautiful Murray was a bit closer!
