Alpine has started to show a lot more calm in her sitter’s home, being able to choose to spend time in another room while they are home. On campus, she is finding it a bit trickier to be in another room as her handler. Alpine is finding the most success with a treat and train providing food/feedback support. We are working on reducing the rate of reinforcement. Alpine has been dabbling in different types of interrupters and alerts, and positional cues this month. She really enjoys getting to put her front paws across her handler’s lap!

Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Alpine!
