Another month flew by, full of fun and learning. Had several romps in the forest practicing a rocket recall and some play dates with my PADS pals, including playing with my sister Quinn for the first time since we were wee pups.

Another snow day in the month gave me a chance to test out the pup boots—with no goose-stepping this time.

The in-person puppy classes help to practice dog distraction, as well as learn a new skill, the “tree wrap,” which makes the raiser dizzy as we rotate around a pillar…but eventually got the hang of it!

Following along the grocery cart when we shop has a breeze, and keeping the nose off the ground means more kibble reward!

The big news…off to Advanced Training next month!
