Early in February, Greco had an assessment with the training staff that took place at Lougheed Mall in Burnaby. He did really well with all the distractions, including the lovely Heather C., his previous raiser and new staff member at PADS, the wonderful Val B., who volunteers with PADS and is the breeder-caretaker of Greco’s mom Bailey and Margaret H., who heads up PADS’ training department. It was a lot for him to handle! We came home from the assessment with some really helpful feedback and specific skills for Greco to work on.

Otherwise, February was very much like every other month in the pandemic: limited outings, mall visits on rainy days, and fun runs in Pacific Spirit Park.
