Puppy fun...

Bravo has been through three courses of basic obedience classes, starting when he was 8 weeks old.  He is tremendously fun to train. Not only is he smart, learning new things quickly, but he is just so happy about the whole thing.

Today was our second week at "Wag It Games," class.  Dogs learn how to do a variety of things, and then later we will put it all together to have some good times.  Chris came to class today with the camera and caught a few nice shots of the boy at work.

The other dogs in class today were a Briard, a Brittany Spaniel and a Kerry Blue Terrier.
We practiced navigating the ladder obstacle.

Going through hoops in a predetermined pattern.

Going to and laying on a mat on command.

And some super fun "sniff it," scent discrimination games.

There was time for a kiss and a cuddle, too...

Afterwards we took him for a short walk on the beach. The waves scared him a little. We will try again another time.  Then we got him a little cup of vanilla ice cream. That didn't frighten him a bit.  Such a good puppy.  I can't wait to see what other fun things we will learn to do together.
