HECTOR recently got to visit Colliery Dam. He got the opportunity to meet many other dogs at the off-leash dog park right off the water near the dam. Hector also got to practice good leash manners and obedience when a volunteer handled him through an obstacle course where the volunteer held a tray with 2 cups of water. He did a great job!
