Noel is settling into her new routine, and having a great time. She plays a wicked game of fetch, which helps her work off some excess puppy energy. Straight up ball throwing is too boring for this smart girl. She likes a challenge so Trainer Paula makes the game harder by throwing all different sorts of toys off of the deck in different directions. Noel has to figure out where the toy is, how to get to it, and how to get it back to Paula. She also has to sit before the toy is thrown, and drop it with no hassle when she brings it back. Complex fetch works Noel's brain as well as her body. This helps her focus when it's time to work.
What has Noel been working on? She's been improving her leash walking skills, and has started work on settling. Sitting still is Noel's least favorite activity, so that's going to take a lot of work. We know she can do it though!
