ACORN continues to show progress in his training and is doing well with his core cues. Along with his training buddy Dennis, he is working on sharpening his sit, stand and down cues, adding longer durations and more distractions. Acorn and Dennis are also working on all skills with various methods of proofing and are doing well working through both novel dog and cat distractions. Acorn particularly enjoys field trips to the off-leash park where fun is had with other dogs.
