Smart Puppies

Puppy Raiser Meeting
Sept 20th, 2016
Petsmart in Brandon

The SouthShore Super Hero raisers met in Brandon at Petsmart.

Our SuperHeros got to work on focusing with all the sight, sound and smell distractions.

All our puppies gathered next door to Petsmart in the old Sports Authority store. Our two youngest puppies were able to join us here but did not participate in the Petsmart activities.



Our puppies patiently waited while the raisers listened to announcements and updates on some of our Super Heros 




Trekker and Keebler went home after announcements while the older puppies went next door to Petsmart to practice and show off skills.

Though we don't have photos... the birds and other small critters were quite curious of all the attention they got from our Super Heros

After our Super Heros completed their challenges the raisers gathered for a pop quiz on appropriate toys for our Super Heros 

Bentley was quite intrigued by some of the toys shown

Sara showing her great attentiveness

Sherwin loved the meeting and can't wait to see everyone next meeting!
