Playtime for the Puppy
Playtime is training time with Jen, Allie and Kendall
Social interaction among dogs is an important part of their growth and development. At least once a month, Jennifer Brinson and I try to arrange a playdate for our dogs. Kendall, a Golden Retriever, five years old and a therapy dog teaches Allie, our Black Lab, how to be a well-mannered dog. They are both sweet-tempered dogs with pleasing dispositions. While they play, we dine at a favorite restaurant, then return to supervise and enjoy. Here's our most recent playdate, which always includes a visit to the llamas because Tess always knows when Jen's on the farm.
