Maverick is really settling in and getting into the fun parts of advanced training, where we focus on the basics and take those skills on the road. We are also taking advantage of the lovely fall weather and enjoying taking training on the road to outdoor locations like the local park. Of course, when you are at the park it can’t be all work, so there are plenty of play breaks with his training mates Suzuki, Desi and Shale.
