Beach time to Town & Trail Class

Oh my my...yesterday afternoon was like a marathon of fun times. Mom and I explored a different area at Chrissy Field just below the Golden Gate Bridge....and, wow!
As us puppers need to be on leash to explore some areas here (wildlife preserves), I got lots of room to roam on my long line. I was so jazzed!
I haven't spent much time at the beach...but wow! I'm ready to go back..might need to take a little nap first though :)
It was such a pretty day out...nice break from our dreary foggy days.
I discovered the waves!! They will still take some getting used to...crashing, and slithering up the sandy shore... I'll be back waves!
I was pooped....but why leave? I'm not going. It's nice right here thank you. However.....I did have my last class of the Town & Trail series at our Humane Society... Did not want to miss this class! There was a slight hitch you can see in the picture below...TRAFFIC!
A little late, but we made the class!! Just in time for the group photo....while practicing sitting nicely in a new environment. This has really been a fun class. Each Wednesday eve we have met at a different trail or path. We have practiced many recalls, loose leash walking, polite greetings and passings.... Tonight was at a local shopping well as walking through, waiting at stairs and intersections, we got to spend time in a store practicing good manners!
I think I did pretty good, I must say!! This class was also passing us for the Humane Society's Canine Good Citizen Certificate. The last task was to stay with a 'stranger' while our hooman went into a nearby coffee shop...... We were having cheesecake and tea to celebrate the last class!
The instructor, Anni Black, gave us pressies, even trail mix to our hoomans :) and all of us pals passed and received certificates. Thank you Anni, and assistants, Candy and Amy! Most excellent!
This was one of those really nice afternoons that left us with big smiles.
Have a wonderful day pals.

  21. Congratulations!! We need to take that class! Were you allowed to wear a head collar for the test? I had thought you had to be on a flat collar, which is Cabana's main holdout. Let's all go to the beach soon--if summer will EVER get here!

  22. We have never been to the beach, Sierra Rose, but we bet it would be fun to jump the waves. Congrats on your CGC award - great job.

  23. Hi Sierra, good work passing your CGC - we are very proud of you.
    That looked like a great walk you had before your class - we love seeing the sunshine.
    We were both a little scared of waves at first - especially noisy ones but they are great fun!

  25. Way to go on the CGC certificate - and you're so young... way to go, girl!

    Did you dig holes on the beach? When we lived in your area, digging very deep holes was our dogs' fave beach activity. We'd snooze while they dug and dug and dug!

    Great day!
