Zion had a good month. She left all the Christmas decorations alone and played with her new Benebones and stuffies.

Zion is learning lots of new things in class: perch, jump on, duration sit, stand, and down. Her house manners are excellent. She’s mastering her loose leash walking and can now, finally, go and play with the other dogs in the dog park without being too silly. She has good recall and will do just about anything if she gets paid with cheese.

Zion’s humans appreciated having to get out a couple of times a day for long walks in spite of the awful weather. One of Zion’s New Year resolutions is to stop her obsession with sticks.
