We have not been out in public much this month. We did manage to go to the Christmas market though. Pal was overly excited by all the smells and dropped bits of food on the ground. High value treats were given out frequently. Bath time and nail trimming has become much easier with Pal. He catches on quickly to new cues as long as there is food involved.

The snow has presented a new challenge as I find Pal is very excited at the beginning of our walks. Loose leash walking has become essential otherwise I would be skating behind Pal.

Pal is a high energy puppy but he loves to curl up in front of the fire with me at the end of the day.
