While it may be officially spring, it’s still snow season in Calgary, so Bruno has been waiting patiently to hit the local parks with his advanced training friends. While we wait for better weather to arrive, we have been working hard on public access test scenarios...

We started off this month by volunteering at the PADS Calgary golf tournament. Bruno was able to visit and charm all the golfers and it may go down as his best day ever! There is nothing he loves more than visiting people and showing off his goofy personality. In...

The focus of this month was fun with a bit of training thrown in! We spent a lot of time at the off-leash park where Bruno worked on his recall. Even with the other dogs running around him, Bruno can stay in a sit or a down until I recall him. We spent time this month...

This month, we put the finishing touches on ‘side’ by putting this on a verbal cue. Bruno has been working on moving between ‘sit’, ‘down’ and ‘stand’ in a heel and side position. While his positioning isn’t...

This month Bruno has been working on taking his skills on the road and building duration on his existing skills. He has been working hard on this while staying still is not his favourite. We are continuing to perfect the placement of ‘heel’ and position...

This month, Bruno had a couple of firsts, including spending the weekend with a sitter. Although he took a little while to settle in, he did well and worked hard to settle around the other puppy in training in the home. He had the opportunity to visit the off-leash...

Bruno has had quite a fun month! He has shown a lot of growth in his maturity and is proving that he has a solid understanding of the skills he knows. We have started shaping ‘side’ and ‘touch’ and have put ‘tug’ on a command. We...

This month we focus on house manners with Bruno. There is nothing he loves more than playing with my other dogs in the home. However, we are working on ensuring that this occurs appropriately. It hasn’t been easy, but he is starting to understand. We continue to...

Bruno had a busy month filled with some new experiences. We began the month by heading to the local arena and watching some of the ringette tournaments. This allowed Bruno to try to settle into a new environment. Although he didn’t settle perfectly, he did lie...

Bruno is a fun guy who loves to have a good time. He adores people and gives a full-body wiggle when he sees someone he knows. Since he is now fully vaccinated, we are able to go to off-leash parks, which helps dispel his abundance of energy! We are working on...
