August was an action-packed month! I got to swim in river current like a water treadmill (on a long water-proof leash of course), took visiting guests wine tasting, had a dinner party with my girlfriend Sophie, and had fun watching polo with a few other PADS buddies. I also took part in a fun dress-up golf event, attended my first GD Bart test, went camping where I fine-tuned my swimming skills, and went to a lot of other random locations for photo opportunities during the Amazing Raise!

Regarding my training, loose leash walking still remains at the top of my list. I am also working on regular duration activities such as “sit”, “stand”, “down”, “go-in”, and “wait”, but with adding a variety of distractions using other dogs, toys, and fast motions. I’m getting it all.
