Finesse has been going for lots of hikes this month with her Advanced Trainer and her weekend sitter. She is a dog who thrives on a fair amount of physical activity as an outlet for her energy. Finesse has been on an increasing amount of field trips to test her manners. She has struggled with scavenging in the past and has made great improvements in this area. She absolutely loves performing her obedience cues and adds a certain flair to her position changes. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing enthusiastically! We are still working on her self-regulation in exciting/distracting environments.

  • Skills being learned: Interrupter behaviours (chin rest, nose nudge, My Lap)
  • Recent field trips: Langley Events Centre, Lougheed Mall, movie theatre, Willowbrook Mall
  • Possible behavior challenges: Arousal/Lunging
  • Advanced training location: West Coast (Satellite)

Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Finesse!
