CHESS recently joined the Burnaby Advanced Training class and she is quickly charming her way into the hearts of staff and volunteers. Her soft, caring eyes and adorable forehead wrinkles give her a thoughtful expression that can melt your heart! Chess is lots of fun to work with. She loves to learn and is always happy to spend time training with Lisa and advanced training volunteer Kailea. Lisa is working with Chess to build up her confidence in new environments and with new tasks by practicing and sharpening the cues she knows well from Puppy Raising. She has also begun retrieve introduction and is progressing well. We look forward to seeing how Chess progresses in the program!

  • Skills being learned: Sharpening basic obedience and public access manners, retrieve introduction, recall following playtime.
  • Recent field trips: Lougheed Mall, Ikea, PetSmart, Trout Lake, various training field trips.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Low confidence in some situations.
  • Potential career path: Service, AFD or PTSD

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