PUPPY OF THE MONTH: Clover
 
Clover is a calm and confident puppy in the Kindergarten Puppy Class. She is a great student and learns 4-5 new commands each week. To say that she enjoys playing on the beach would be an understatement! She loves digging in the sand, swimming in the ocean, and practicing new skills with her Puppy Raiser each day. She also loves interacting with children at the Montessori School. Keep up the good work, Clover!
