Empress has been settling in well to the kennel and has become fast friends with Dervish and Vespa! Empress has been showing herself to be a very biddable and sweet girl who easily transfers to other handlers. Sometimes she has arousal spikes around greetings and may jump or goose. She is working on regulating her excitement in those moments and keeping four on the floor. We are also looking to channel that excitement into various skills as she explores potential careers. So far she’s really enjoying trying out skills!
- Skills being learned: Practice of foundations and introduction of potential skills
- Recent field trips: Lougheed Mall, Robert Burnaby Park and others
- Possible behavior challenges: to be determined
- Advanced training location: Burnaby
- Potential career path: Assistance Dog, AFD or VIP
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Empress!
