Video: Working at a Paintball Field

Today, Austin and his friend celebrated their 13th birthday's together at a paintball field with twelve of their friends. It was Bo's first time at the field. He handled the sounds of the guns, the yelling and screaming of players and the running and activity very well. He gave a woof at an adult, fully geared up player who was wearing a mask but stopped with redirection. Over the course of the five hours we were there, Bo alerted to a high of 220 and a low of 75.

In this video, you can hear the noise of guns being shot and players yelling. You can see Bo remain in a relaxed down. A fly on his rump got his attention more than the noise.  I would highly recommend training at a paintball field for the many distractions it presents.
