We had a good size group at our meeting even with the following pups being absent: Leah, Sophia, Gus, Montana, Idunn, and Sebastian.

I believe that there were seven flights of steps with landings in between, which proved to be very good practice for our pups. We had a 10 foot lead to use on any of the pups who were unsure of the steps - the longer lead allows the puppy to go up and down at their own pace without feeling pressured - thus instilling confidence.

Exercise, fresh air, good company, and a great group of puppy raisers - this Area Coordinator couldn't ask for anything more on a pretty spring day in Bradenton.
