So we went to the beach this weekend and also hiking. I had my husband film a short goofing off / training session. Zoe did some of her tricks at the beach. I was actually really impressed with how focused she was on me. Normally the beach is just too overwhelming but she's getting a lot better. At one point in the video she went to see if a shell was chicken and I just said "leave-it" and she came right back to me and did more tricks. My expectations were very, very low as we were in a high distraction environment. She had a great time. Fun day.
