Phoenix graduates from Puppy Headstart!
Not all graduates get a cap & gown treatment like this fellow, but we have lots of proud parents like these at graduation time!
Some Canine Good Citizen (CGC) graduates...and their proud humans!
Puppy Manners are a family affair!
Sitting like a pro!
Nothing says the trainer has to weigh more than the pup!
Sitting is one thing; sitting and staying in a hoop is another!
Some pups seem born to jump...with a little encouragement!
You can teach a dog to stay...even if he's bigger than you are!
Whispering a few words of encouragement during a break.
Even a young pup can learn the important basics!
Some pups just can't wait to get back to training.
Sometimes training must be interrupted for a heartfelt hug!
Loose leash walking (while carrying a ping-pong ball in a spoon!)
Another great loose leash!
Praise for a task well done!
Dad keeps the leash, but daughter and dog are totally in sync!
Graduation day is a proud time for everyone!
New experiences (like walking onto a wobbly surface) require careful planning (note both the foot and hand stabilizing the disc)...and a treat that makes it a risk worth taking.
