Team Training ~ Day 12

Today was the last official day of Team Training. :) To celebrate, we had the annual Puppy Raiser Picnic. Puppy raisers are a huge and important part of our program, they make everything we do possible and give the dogs that preliminary foundation they need to be successful. Therefore, we like to throw them a picnic every year to celebrate.

It is also a wonderful opportunity for the teams to get to know their puppy raiser. They are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to some of their dog's habits in a home environment.

Pizookie will be raised by Hope & Sierra (pictured above)

The dogs (and kids) enjoyed getting the chance to run and swim in the pond and just be dogs for the day, followed by a bath in Cheryl's Mobile Grooming van.

Lastly, to rap up the day, the teams and puppy raisers' got a gift: a blanket for the graduates, (that's right, everyone is graduating tomorrow!) and matching pillows for the puppy raisers :)

It was an amazing day, and I think I speak for all when I say it was loads of fun! Check in tomorrow to read hear about GRADUATION!!!!!!!!

The dessert litter (10 weeks old) was on hand to bring smiles and warm puppy kisses to all. Gotta love that puppy breath!

A HUGE thanks to Shelia, Karrie, and Charlene for the blankets and pillows!! They're absolutely amazing and will be cherished for a long time to come :)
