GATSBY enjoyed spending some time with a sitter in the last few weeks. He got a good mix of work and play, practicing his manner in a different environment with a more novel handler and getting lots of playtime with new dogs! Back at Rob’s training campus, Gatsby continues to improve in his skills and is always excited to work and learn new things. Gatsby is progressing in his retrieve skills and has started working on retrieving and carrying more complicated items. Gatsby also made a new friend this month! Sandy joined Rob’s string at the end of February and Gatsby is loving having a new buddy to play with!
