Training with Jenn from SEGD

This was a great event! It was nice to have a trainer come from Southeastern Guide Dogs and instruct us on the new training techniques. These new techniques focus on greeting people and dogs with your puppy in his/her coat. I felt that this greatly helped me and I will continue to work on these skills with Newman in future outings.

Today I had to pick up my new glasses. He did a very good job at his down under command and greeting others in public. Overall, Newman is continuing his daily training and is regularly doing outings.
