AVERY passed his pre-placement testing this month! We are hard at work looking for the perfect match for this handsome boy. In the meantime, Avery continues to train and socialize in various locations and is a rockstar at maintaining his focus around varying distractions. His focus this month has been making sure his ‘wait’ at doorways is super solid. He is also working on the ‘rest’ cue, so he knows when it is time to take a nap! We hope to have news about a placement for Avery in the very near future!

  • Skills being learned: ‘Rest’, sharpening ‘wait’ cue at doorways, maintaining all basic obedience and public access manners.
  • Recent field trips: Ambleside Park, Ikea, various local secondary schools, various local malls, Downtown Vancouver, Superstore, PetSmart, New Westminster Quay, PNE, 8 Rinks.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Dog distraction, olfactory distraction.
  • Potential career path: AFD

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