September 18, 2022 : The London x Jack litter spent the week at the Albion Fair for their field trips. There, they were exposed to large crowds, games, rides, and many diffrent animals at the barns. There was even a pretty awesome Rodeo for them to experience.


September 4,2022  : The London x Jack litter are continuing their field trips and obedience lessons in town. They are used to riding quietly in crates or sitting /laying down in the back seat to travel. We have gone to local parks, the Edinboro University and Tractor Supply. We will also be going to a local fair around the 14th.


August 26, 2022: This week the pups continued to work on auto sits and the down command. Both are going well. They are being lured into the under command, with fewer treats needed to accomplish the tasks. We also had a lot of children visiting over the last few weeks for play dates and snuggles. The London x Jack litter is also going on short, pleasant exposure field trips into town and local pet-friendly stores.

* I am working on getting a specific "plug-in "for the website to be able to load training videos.
