March was a low key month for Lore. He has been naturally working on settling on his own and finding ways to keep himself amused while independently playing with his stuffies or chewing on his permitted bones.

In the first half of the month, we focused on precision with “sit” and “stand” as well as “down” while staying in place. We also worked on duration “chin” and some off leash walks with continued recall including “here” and “this way”. He loves a good run and play with his brother PADS Quill. The second part of the month included a two-week period of healing from his neuter. A daily inspection of his healing incision really helped Lore master the cue “over”, followed by a belly rub, and some extra cuddles.
