DORY joined Ashley’s string at the end of June and spent some time in the advanced kennel working on various skills so that Ashley could get to know her. Dory is now staying at home with her sitters to practice foundations using the online training platform of video lessons and video calls that Ashley started as a pilot project. Dory has come along really nicely in her heels and sides and her confidence in nail trims! Nice work everyone!
- Skills being learned: Practice of obedience and default behaviors, co-operative care for foot handling
- Recent field trips: Various field trips with her advanced sitters
- Possible behavior challenges: Foot/body handling sensitivity, resiliency
- Advanced training location: Burnaby
- Potential career path: Assistance Dog
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Dory!
