Karma was with puppy-sitters Grant and Sylvia until November 13th. The three of us shared one-on-one time with Shona, and Karma was able to show skills and follow commands that were age-appropriate for her. Karma was able to transition from each handler and follow most of the commands while remaining focused on the tasks.

Karma still jumps up and pulls when she gets excited, especially with happy or excited people. Her enthusiasm sometimes gets her in trouble. We have been going to public places and events where we have been working on distractions.

Karma is able to do a twenty minute “go in” at the Food Court in Village Green Mall. She starts to get restless after the twenty-minute mark so we are working on duration.
