Nov 26. 2022: This week, the pups enjoyed playing in the training center. We worked on stairs, exposure to tarps, and going through tunnels for treats. We are continuing to work on sit lessons and crate lessons.

Nov 19, 2022: Welcome to your pup's training journal. This week the pups are working on sit lessons and crate lessons. When the weather is nasty, they play inside the reception room or training area. On warmer days, we will be going for hikes in the snow.

Now that we have the basics down, we will switch from a light bumper to heavy weighted and clothe bumpers, dokans and frozen then chilled birds, as this block is all about " the mouth". Once we are satisfied with holding various objects and are happy to do it, we move back to the ground .
