We just did Paws for the Cause in Philadelphia with our 8 month old puppy Kobe. He of course was so excited and jumping everywhere, but he was friendly, and sat when asked to, took pictures overall did great for alot of dogs, people etc. Until the Band came on....and a microphone...and then we could not find a good place to hide until we were in our car. He tried. A lady who had a therapy lab, complimented on how good he did, and said that her dog would have never made it that long. We are already waiting for next year. I told my kids, "ok lets remember this and see how much better he is next year"... One can hope....
