In the heat of the summer, the mall is the perfect place for a meeting. Unfortunately due to the absence of our regular photographer, pictures are limited.
We take advantage of the multiple doors to have a practice session of "left-hinged doors". There is a specific way to navigate through these doors to prevent a door from hitting the pup. We start working on this command at an early age, but don't hold the pup accountable until ten months of age. Following are pictures of our pups in different stages of their learning curve.
First up Bogey, one of our youngest pups.
Hero, Bogey's litter mate, is up next. Lot's of new smells on the carpet.
Lucky, who is a couple of months older, straightens up the sit.
Ginny gets lots of praise for her good execution.
Wally looks to his raiser to say "I got this".
Our senior member, Remington, gets silly and decides to handle his own leash.
After practicing at the doors, we split in to two groups and spend some time walking the mall.
Ginny and Lucky can't figure out the boy in the bubble.
