HAPPY FIRST YEAR BIRTHDAY!!!! Cheshire & Gloucester came to the birthday party in our back garden. There was a rousing interaction until York demonstrated that he’s come into high testosterone and thought Cheshire was appealing! Soooo, York spent most of the party on a leash, restrained. Progress is noted in all PADS training areas for York’s age. Duration continued to increase with a 4-minute stand inside the house when I wandered from room to room. Sit & Stand are also secure with duration, distance, and distraction. We’re practising airplane & toss preparing for house guests with two young children coming in mid-April. We continue to enjoy York’s presence.
