Empress has been enjoying working on her skills and has decided to focus on trying out sound work! She is learning what sounds are important and how to alert to them. Sometimes she is very polite, so she is working on knowing it’s ok to nose bump nice and strong. She’s having lots of fun getting to boop for treats! Empress also took some time this month to work at home with Ashley to practice generalizing her skills to other environments. So far, so good!
- Skills being learned: Practice of foundations and introduction of potential skills
- Recent field trips: A gym, Winners and others
- Possible behavior challenges: occasional arousal spikes with surprise movement excites
- Advanced training location: West Coast (Burnaby Campus)
