Harley, Buster, and Jo Dee waiting for a horse to come by.

On our way to Colorado Springs tomorrow. Stopped by the El Pueblo Adolescent Treatment Community today.

Pueblo CO

Pueblo Animal Services wall of friendship. Paws for Life Animal Welfare is breaking ground on a new facility. Pet Paradise had some really large Koi. Really excited about meeting up with Ed and Irene Russell who own and operate "Luv "N" Care". Ed has attended the same ABC Behavior College that I am presently attending. Looking forward to meeting them both.

Canon City and Penrose

Buster performed the "Soft Exercise" in excellent form today at a surprise demonstration at All Star Pets 708 Main St. Canon City, CO . Also visited Four Mile Veterninary Clinic LLC., Fremont Veterinary Hospital, Kenline Vet, and for me a wine tour at the Holy Cross Abbey. http://www.abbeywinery.com/
The Canon Humane Society offered a wonderful selection of dogs and cats. Most impressed by the bloodhound and the 3 cattle dog puppies.

Practice Practice

Any trick or new training command should be repeated at least 20 times per day for the first week. Then repeat 10 times the next week, and the following week 5 times per day. When the dog fails to perform, go back to kindergarten 20 times per day and work forward.
