DERVISH joined the Team Burnaby Advanced Training string this month and has settled into the kennel nicely. He is making friends with the other dogs in the kennel and has enjoyed rooming with Finesse and most recently Muse. Dervish is great with kids and has been doing well on field trips with Ashley, Jessica, and Margaret. He has gotten the chance to spend time in some schools and with some younger children and does well in these environments. Dervish is a very sweet boy who loves his people. He is still getting used to seeing other PADS dogs when out and about on field trips and we are seeing improvement on every outing with him. We are excited to spend more time getting to know this lovely boy and are looking forward to seeing where training takes him! Thank you to Team Dervish for all the love and hard work you have put into raising him; you should be very proud of him!
