Apollo has a send out!!

:yipee:
So happy right now! It is far from perfect, but Apollo's send out is looking like a send out!

After talks with my TD we made up a way to train the send out for a deaf dog but had no idea if it would work. So far it has!
With a little bit of prep work Apollo hit the exact spot I wanted him to what I yelled Platz on the training field yesterday.
It was the first time trying the send out, outside of my backyard.
We tried it again today in a horse field with the same results.

I am just so excited! It was one of those things that I thought might keep us from being able to compete, but Apollo is showing us that with a little creativity anything is possible!
