HERO spent his second month in Advanced Training on an extensive road trip through BC and Alberta. He traveled well and loved exploring new places. He is always happy to pose for a photo and greet new friends. He will happily wrestle with any playful dogs and readily settles for a nap when we are inside. Hero is working on building his duration for stationary positions in new environments, while continuing to build his confidence around new experiences.  

  • Skills being learned: Confidence building exercises, strengthening duration obedience, maintaining and sharpening basic obedience and public access manners.
  • Recent field trips: PADS Okanagan, See Spot Run, Cottonwood House, Starlight Drive-In.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Noise sensitivity, fear of novel objects, confidence.
  • Potential career path: AFD

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