DUSTY II has been working hard on shaping up her obedience skills and practicing transferring to novel handlers and working in different environments. She has great eye contact and is a lot of fun to train. Dusty is a quick study and she loves to learn! When she is not training hard with Lisa, Dusty enjoys a good romp in the yard with play buddies Truffle, Zaria and Jericho.
- Skills being learned: Foundational service skills, loose leash walking, maintaining obedience cues when being approached for pets.
- Recent field trips: Ikea, Maplewood Farms, Lougheed Mall, off-leash dog park, Downtown New Westminster, local secondary schools, Choices Market, PetSmart.
- Possible behavior challenges: Inhibition with novel tasks and objects, sensitivity to novel sounds, some alert barking, impulse control on leash.
- Potential career path: AFD, Service or PTSD
