Derby’s New Year’s resolution is to just continue being her sweet and eager self – you shouldn’t change what is already perfect! January has been filled with lots of learning and exploring to help us find the perfect job for her. Right now, her favourite skills are retrieving and playing tug. But honestly, Derby seems to do anything that involves getting treats, followed closely by anything that involves being loved on.

  • Skills being learned: Nose target, movement skills, retrieving
  • Recent field trips: Pisces Pet Emporium, Chasin Tails, Grocery stores
  • Possible behavior challenges: Can be concerned about fast-moving people closing space on her, body handling concern
  • Advanced training location: Calgary

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