Paying it forward with puppy love....

Just finished teaching my puppy classes this week and had the pleasure of working with the new adopters of Sunny and Cher. Here's a photo of the two 11 week old Lab mix puppies who were found back in the fall with their ears cut off. They are actually focused and giving me attention (that's my knee!) as I reward them for calm sits and eye focus.

Both puppies will be starting off on the right paw (as well as their owners) with clicker training and attending my Saturday puppy class in Encinitas. The puppies are little love-bugs! Of course everyone will recognize them with their unique look so it's important to give them the tools to be successful out there in the world; A trusting relationship with their owners and socialization to the world around them all supported with positive reinforcement will give them the stepping stones to great success. I am looking forward to being a part of their growth!
