Beacon continues to explore his career and skills options this month. He got to spend some time trying out AFD (Accredited Facility Dog) environments, and he loved doing meet and greets and getting all the pets as well as taking nap breaks. He’s been working on building calm in the car with counter conditioning and games and is trying out a harness to see if being secure will help him settle better. He’s been coming along with reducing barking in some scenarios and has become a pro at stationing in the training centre quietly despite exciting distractions! Great work, Beacon! 

We are incredibly grateful for the support for Advanced Dog Beacon.
