dogs actions. Joan Weston specializes in aggression and the rehabilitation

play date with photon


duke had a reunion with his classmate photon at the beaches off-leash dog park and had a howler-ific time. duke and photon hadn't seen each other since their 'step ahead' class almost 1.5 years ago.

photon impressed us with her leg weaving and duke blew out everybody's eardrums.

we also ran into a classmate from duke's current obedience class!

thanks peter for putting up with duke's overly enthusiastic howling and meeting us in the freezing cold!

i'm sure duke had a really great time playing fetch with photon!
