CADENCE has started working on retrieve this month and is enjoying learning this new skill so far. She loved the snow we received in mid-January and took advantage of the extra days off at home during PADS campus closure to get extra naps and cuddles. Cadence will continue to work with Margaret, with the assistance of Emma, and will also start working on skills like ‘button’ and ‘push’ with Lisa as she returns to work over the next few months.
- Skills being learned: ‘Push’, ‘button’, ‘open the door’, retrieve.
- Recent field trips: Various field trips with training staff and advanced sitters.
- Possible behavior challenges: Separation anxiety.
- Advanced training location: Burnaby
- Potential career path: Service
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Cadence!
