Valentine came back to her raiser just in time to celebrate her first birthday! That weekend she met up with her friends – Pumpkin, Bonnie and Ocean for a fun filled afternoon at Playland for a “girls only” birthday party. This month, because of her heat cycle, Valentine was not in class. We worked on the “stand” cue at home and with sitters. She still struggles with this cue a bit but is getting the hang of it. Her loose leash walking is going back to basics with training as she did experience the “heat brain” that has caused some disruption to the training. She ended the month with a visit to her Kits sitters, Jennie and Tom and had some great exercise opportunities in Pacific Spirit Park while her raiser took a vacation in the USA.
