Coco & Henry had a big field trip day yesterday, Thursday. We went to the park to work on our obedience & response to seeing other new dogs as well as a change of scenery. It was great. They both did very well. Coco is still very nervous around all the new things so after the park we went to the clinic to pick up dog food for Lexxi & visit Boomer in recovery. All the technicians & Dr.'s thought Coco was quite the cutie-pie so he got to meet about 20 new people & he did very well. He had a little hesitation but once he got the hang of it, he was visiting everyone! I was very happy to see that. While I was there I took advantage of working on Henry staying on his place in the lobby at the clinic with all the clients coming in & out with their pets. He did WONDERFUL! He stayed on his place & watched & some of the dogs would come over to give him a good sniff over & he got perky & happy but never moved. I'm very proud of him. I had hoped to start Henry on his off leash last night but with an already full day we didn't get to that. So our goal in training today is to get Henry responding to commands off the leash & from distances away. I'm also very happy to report Henry rang the potty bells all by himself! We're making progress. As for Coco, I'm going to keep working on his socialization & his obedience & manners. He's doing great, I'd just like to see him more confident & not so nervous. He hasn't rang the potty bells yet but he isn't having accidents either ;o) They both send smooches to their mom's & dads. It's not too much longer!

Henry had a pretty relaxed day today. He worked on polishing up his skills from yesterday (heel w/auto sit, sit "stays", at ease, no, let's go). He also learned his "place" command today, of which he did fabulously! He stayed on his "place" with the distractions of other dogs around, the lawn guy at the door, the cats taunting him & me leaving the room. He did excellent! Tomorrow is a big day so stay tuned.......
