DENNIS continues to show progress in his training and is doing well with his core cues. Along with his training buddy Acorn, he is working on sharpening his sit, stand and down cues, adding longer durations and more distractions. Dennis and Acorn are also working on all skills with various methods of proofing and are doing well working through both novel dog and cat distractions. Dennis accompanied his sitters on a field trip to the Horticulture Center of the Pacific this month and did very well in this environment! We look forward to seeing what the future has in store for Dennis!
