Esme turned one year old at the end of November. She celebrated with her friends and pupcakes!

Esme was in heat for most of this month so she didn’t get to go out much (no public access while in heat). But that means she got a little holiday and break from the training. She did enjoy a trip to Whistler though prior to her heat and had many good training opportunities there.

She would like to thank the whole PADS village and humans in her life for helping her come this far in training. Esme has come a long way! She is currently working on leash-guided downs and understanding the difference between Side and Heel.

Recent field trips include Science World and a special Halloween event hosted by Starlight.
