A busy busy day

The puppies had a very busy day today!

They had their first outing. We put 2 pups at a time in a crate in the van and drove them to a local pet store. Each pup rode in a shopping cart (to minimize exposure to pathogens) for a trip around the store. Lots of treats were dispensed and they got to meet some very friendly strangers too. It was interesting to compare their reaction to this trip with the scores they received on their puppy temperament test (they were tested using Shelia Booth's Positive Puppy Preview).

Once they came home they got to play in a tunnel. These puppies are developing a real respect for agility equipment!

In addition the tunnel, they have have some balance discs in their pen. They have been romping on them all week. Today we gave some of them treats for getting all 4 feet up on the balance disc so that we could get some decent video. They seemed to really enjoy the challenge of getting on and staying on!

With so much activity, everyone crashed out at the end of the day. Tomorrow will bring another adventure!

I don't think they were respecting that tunnel. :-) Love the videos. What a great litter!
