TOMMY continue to push his skills in a variety of areas. With help from Mudge, he has been able to maintain engagement and solid loose leash walking, even when encountering his nemesis, the wild rabbit, in close quarters. Tommy has progressed to being nonreactive to strange things appearing outside the window, and he is now working on his suspicion with strange noises. We are hopeful that he will make the same progress he did with the rabbits!
