We attend the Interior Provincial Exhibition (IPE), as suggested by Brian Smith.  While visiting the IPE, Tony was exposed to large busy crowds, farm animals and many people interested and wanting to pet him.  He wanted to play with the chickens and ducks.  He met sheep and befriended one that wagged its tail while Tony licked its nose. The weather was quite warm. Tony did very well – it was a great experience for him.

We are working on Heel and Side while sitting in a chair. Sometimes he zones out during home training and puppy class. Treats have no effect during these times and I just need to let him re-focus himself.  He can be stubborn.
