Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Lady II! This month Lady has had a lot of field trips around the city to practice being in busy and exciting environments. She is an absolute rockstar and has shown that busy environments just mean more engagement with her human. Lady is picking up things at lightning speed, so we are starting to get to the fun stuff! She is learning how to close doors and has started the basics of retrieving. Lady had a chance to spend Christmas with her puppy raiser and take some time off work, which was nice and relaxing for her (although she was very eager to return to work!).

  • Skills being learned: Tugging, closing doors, body targeting, general obedience
  • Recent field trips: West Edmonton Mall, Home Depot, Superstore, PetSmart
  • Possible behaviour challenges: None to note at this time
  • Advanced training location: Calgary

Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Lady II!
