Happy Puppy Students 

Anni and Cashew

Cashew befriended a Burnese-Great Pyranees puppy (but already huge of course!) this summer at Bennett beach. They had SO much fun romping and rolling together. It was so great that he had the confidence to do that, and I had the confidence to let him go for it, thanks to our puppy preschool and kindergarten experience with you!
