Running Errands, Training Trips, & A Bit Of Fun

The past week or so has seen the weather in DC turn cooler with lower humidity. That means that it is more pleasant to go for long walks and explore further afield on foot. Beau and I did just that!

In addition to running some errands, we walked to some new places so Beau could practice his proper doggie etiquette. Without a class this week, I made sure we had plenty of opportunity for mental stimulation and skills practice, too.

We had a great week and it is wonderful to see Beau progressing every day. Our obedience class resumes next week AND I am super excited to attend a nosework seminar to learn more about that dog sport. I think it may be something that Beau would enjoy.

But what about you? Leave a comment to tell us about your biggest victory this week!

Thanks for stopping by!

Beau helped me buy new windshield wiper blades at the local auto supply store. He even tried to follow the social distance rules.

This green ball is Beau’s favorite toy and I just noticed how it gives him a crazy toothy grin, making him look a bit deranged! 😆

We worked on tricks with distraction using the long line and his perch tool. He was a champ!

Lots of distractions but Beau held his position!

Another training exercise – we went to the grocery store parking garage with different sights and sounds. It was late at night to give Beau a completely different experience. He stayed in a down the whole time like a very good boy.
