GELATO has had a busy month! She joined the advanced kennel in the middle of February as well as did a sitter swap so she could spend some time in a home with cats. She has had a lot of fun getting to play with her advanced kennel buddy Simone. Gelato has been practicing different parts of Dress to build her confidence and comfort as well as practicing default Leave Its for food and has been practicing on focus around various distractions when going on field trips. She has also begun to work on Hearing Dog Candidate foundations and enjoys working on the nose bump!

  • Skills being learned: Review of foundations and introduction to sound work
  • Recent field trips: New Westminster Quay, Lougheed Mall and others
  • Possible behavior challenges: Movement excites for small animals and birds
  • Advanced training location: Burnaby
  • Potential career path: Assistance Dog

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