On the first full day at Wildrose Colorado with five of his dogs, Trainer Patrick Allen worked with Mike and other client dogs in a vigorous training session. Under cloudy skies and with temps in the low seventies, the dogs worked in swift-moving water, in scrubby, deep sage brush alongside a steep ridge. The dogs responded with enthusiasm to the western environs.
Appearing in the photos are the following Widlrose dogs: Bailey Belle, (Jeff Burgoyne), Deke, Indian, Lincoln, (Brian Pollock), Ben (Steve Reynolds), Reb (Ryan Pollacci), Kate (John Newman), Lucy, (Joel Moore), and Aggie (Mike Colbert). Guest Jared McCaleb also appears with his dog, Mac.
