If anyone is dressing up their dogs for Halloween, I would love a picture. I will post them in the slide show. It will be great fun!!

Class was a little chilly last night, but everyone persevered. The dogs didn't seem to mind at all. We have hit mid way point and all the dogs and their owners are doing great!! I definitely see improvement in how the dogs are responding to their owners and how owners are working with their dogs.

Keep up the good work. I am looking forward to next week and continuing to be impressed and proud.

Happy Halloween to everyone, Stay safe!!
