AM- woke up shortly after 6am (PDT) to clouds, rain, smoke, bad air quality, and a fair amount of anxiety. The air quality is, in fact less than half of what it’s been. So, there is improvement, at least. The dog trainer is coming to our house today. So, we get to test ourselves and our sweet doggo to test out our practice see if the progress is satisfactory.

We worked on some desensitization exercises today, that will help us feel safer with Canoodles wrt people on the property and his ability to “welcome” guests up the steps to the front sidewalk. This will take the most work of anything we’ve done with him so far. Husb leaves Thurs for his mom’s, so it will be all on me for the next week….
