Easter Parade

Happy Easter from the Bradenton Puppy Raiser Group!

It was a gorgeous morning for our Easter weekend meeting and we met at Tom Bennett Park, which is a beautiful local favorite of ours.   

As our puppies need to learn to be handled quite a bit and they need to learn to eventually accept a harness being put over their heads and a handle lying on their backs, dressing our puppies up is a fun exercise... at least on our end of the leash. 

So, we had an Easter Parade with our pups dressing in their Easter finery.

We also had a "walk by the Easter eggs without lunging at them" exercise.  If the pup got by the egg without lunging for it, then the raiser could take that egg. All but one of the eggs had mini Milk-Bones inside as a treat for the pups, and one special egg had a Cracker Barrel Gift Certificate as a treat for the raiser.

Here are some pictures from our meeting:

Miss T really wanted to pick up her own Easter eggs.

Amanda and Steve were the lucky winners of the gift certificate.

Sweet Lulu looks like she is heading to the gym in her Easter outfit. 
Blue shirt, plaid shorts, pink top and multi colored skirt... all we are missing here is an Easter Bonnet for Steve. 
Lulu looking... CUTE!
The pink ears and turquoise top look stunning against Ava's shinny black coat. 

Happy Easter, everyone!  Woof Woof
