Breaker had his first trip to Spanish Banks and Jericho Beach this week, and loved it. He could smell the water as soon as he got out of the car, and while he was afraid to get himself wet, he loved playing in the sand. I let him play in the long grasses near the beach and it was like he was on a jungle safari, marching and jumping around.

He’s also become a favorite with the staff and patrons at the downtown YMCA. He’s really good with all the activity and noise around him and loves the attention he gets from everyone there.

His training is going pretty well. He finally got the hang of waiting for his food until “released” and is good with elevators. We’re working on the “down” cue this week.
