Last Friday we headed to the mall. It is outdoors, so we did a lot of walking around and practicing commands. Dante was having an especially good day, and was listing very well.
Our mall has a kids section that we had fun in. Dante practiced sitting on different surfaces and levels:
This picture does not do justice to how BIG Dante's paws are. Everywhere we go, people say two things: "He's so cute!" and "His paws are HUGE!":

There were a bunch of different statues too.
|This dog has THE sloppiest sits I have ever seen...|
I had Dante "sit" and stay there while I hopscotched. He stayed while I went down and all the way back! Yay for little victories!
There was also a little house that he got to check out:
How I love this goofy golden smile!
I love getting out with this little guy! And he loves it too. When I take him somewhere (especially after a day or two of being home all day), his whole demeanor changes and he is the happiest, most well behaved puppy in the world. He loves to go to new places and meet new people, and that makes for a happy raiser!
