As advertised, this week's new location was a swimming pool where Cooper watched his boy. He was cautious of the new surface and plastic drain tiles, but settled in quickly and calmly greeted a young swimmer while waiting patiently.
After swimming, Mac stopped at Mounds to get a brush so he can help care for Cooper. We picked up a month's supply of dog food and weighed our growing beast. He weighed in at 51 pounds.
Our weekly training class at the Dog Den was preceded by a quick run through at the mall to practice SIT, DOWN, STAY with human distractions. The canine distractions proved to be more challenging, especially during playtime. Cooper is adapting to working with all four of his trainers.
