A few months ago, Reyna refused to go down these stairs. She would just put on the breaks. She was having issues with shiney, slick surfaces and I don't know if you can tell, but these stairs are very shiney and slick, not to mention steep. We have been working with Reyna on this and it appears she has conquered her fear. Check her out as Tony takes her down the stairs. She is walking on a nice, loose leash and she is walking at the pace of her handler. Yay! She is confident and controlled and we are very proud of her :)

Reyna thinks pups and firefighters were made for each other!

Wendy has been with Glenda for two months now and she knows the following words: home, mailbox, park, crosswalk, tennis courts, water fountain and now trash can! After that, I did some off leash obedience with Starling while Glenda and Wendy watched. Then we let Starling and Wendy run around and play together. They had a blast! Starling taught Wendy how to play "find it" with the Goughnut stick. Wendy would find the toy and touch it with her nose, and Starling would actually find it, retrieve it and bring it back to me. When we got back to Glenda's I showed Glenda how to use a grooming tool on Wendy and we use some Miracle Groom on her as well. Then both dogs took a long nap and Glenda and I had a chance to visit for awhile. I feel so fortunate that I have developed such a strong friendship with Glenda. It is truly a puppy raisers dream. Wendy and Glenda are the perfect match! Wednesday is Glenda's birthday, and I will be taking her out to lunch with another puppy raiser and one of the board members from Guide Dogs. Today was just a wonderful day!

Then, they worked the dogs around the ponds, exposing them to ducks and geese.
They did stair work with the dogs.
They also worked on down, stay. Reyna did very well throughout the entire outing!
This picture of Gayle and Romeo is too cute! I just had to put it on the blog.
