A good reason to train your pups is so that they can more fully pawticipate in family life and more easily be taken to public places. Our pawrents started our training when we were very young. As soon as our vaccinations were all done, we started attending PSU (Pet Smart University) cuz our pawrents said we were gonna be social doggies!
Our pawrents exposed us to everything they could find. Loud noises, lots of people and general commotion were just some of the things they sought out so we would not be scared when we were man-dogs.
So when we were just 6 months old they decided we were ready for our first LONG ride in the truck. We went on vacation to Northern California!
We learned all about oceans!
We explored beaches!
We learned about waves and salt water!
We learned that driftwood was fun!
We learned that digging in the sand is a blast!
We learned about hiking and giant redwood trees!
And we practiced posing - everywhere!
Mom and dad say we are great travelers and they are blessed to be able to take us with them. We just think we're lucky to explore so many new places! So far we have been to 12 states: Utah, Idaho, Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Indiana, South Dakota, and Illinois. Pretty soon (next month) we're gonna add Washington to the list too!
So next time your pawrents talk to you about school, it might be a good idea to go!
