This is an odd article that has ‘Nothing’ and ‘Everything’ to do with creating the Star Arena® Mini, Meta, Mega~Verse and is part of the Covid Dairy series. The short version is that I had a severe collision with corona during the early days of the pandemic and to this day I am still incapacitated from carpentry. Thus far it is Woodwork that has financed this Hobby project and it remains to be seen if I am forced into early retirement? Although one thing has become abundantly clear; Be my future any combination of Either, And, Wood Or Game~Smith? Neither will be achieved without regular and daily Physical Therapy sessions! Below is an overview of my Training Equipment.

Rather I would pursue a more heavenly path to paradiso by simply stepping outside and share my training sessions with the Dog(s) for a few hours a day. In the PT _Physical Therapy / Personal Training_ Notebook I will elaborate in full length on these proceedings in a more illustrative way. For now I can summarize that these exercises are a mixture of Boot Camp (Outdoor Sport) and Dog Training (Gun Dog and Scent Work) aimed to train and entertain both K9 and Handler.
This post serves as an Item Index that when combined does duty as Training Equipment. In the summer of 2022 I added ballast to the exterior of my first vest as an experiment. Later I found out that the Cross Fit industry made Weight Plates for the inside of these Operator Vests. My original vest has been retired after circa 3 years of service and a summer of abuse. This list is the new Configuration and Generation of my Dog Gear. If you add up the numbers, you’ll see; This kit does not come cheap, …but it is a small price to pay if it helps me draw pain free again!
This Is My New Reality; If I Do Not Upkeep My Training Sessions?
The Pain and Discomfort Quickly Returns To Neck And Arms!
To Be Honest; Going out on Dog Patrol is not much of a sacrifice.
It however does make Studio Time shorter and harder to manage in a day.
The true challenge will be balancing Studio & Patrol to the benefit of my health.
