TOMMY has spent June continuing to work on his impulse control, particularly his excitement around balls. He was able to join his puppy raisers for a school graduation ceremony and was a wonderful surprise for the students. We are working on tightening up skills needed to pass the pre-placement test, as well as continuing to work on his reactions to strange noises. Tommy has adapted well to changing environments and remains sweet and affectionate.
