Congratulations to the "E" Pups

Phase #10
Congrats to Samuel and Kalina - you can be so proud of your "E" puppies. They did very well. I know they don't have the job yet but they are all so close. I think a group graduation with Elbert, England, Emmylou, and Eli would be so much fun. Here is the picture again.

I also heard that Elsa is "with pups" now - she will have her first litter soon and Edison is doing his training "in home".

Hooper is growing up and Elbert is in Phase #9

Hooper is too cute. He is growing up nicely. We also heard that Elbert is now in phase #9. Hooper is looking forward to that too - he has a long way to go.

Phase #9
Final obedience testing including on-leash obedience with the instructor wearing a blindfold, off-leash obedience and distraction response. Final testing of guidework inside buildings (malls, stores, etc.) with the instructor wearing a blindfold. Includes working escalators, elevators, stairs, etc. The dogs are also worked by unfamiliar or novice handlers. Final traffic testing with instructor under blindfold and "real life" traffic situations.

Elbert's phase update

Just heard that Elbert is still holding in Phase #8. As long as he is still in, I'm happy.

All four of these sibling puppies are still in. Go "E" pups!!
