Nova is an incredibly loveable dog who has the gaze and gawks of anyone she is near. Impressively, the only one whose gaze she holds is her handlers– she is so fixated on her handlers and eager to do what is asked of her. We adore how Nova is this balance of independence but also loves a good cuddle and pet.

We had many outings this month, including many swims, visits to farm markets, grocery stores, coffee shops and sitting at school. We also got to have a PADS puppy class picnic that Nova was a big fan of. We are looking forward to the summer holidays and having the time to take her to new places and support her in experiencing new things.
