LOTUS joined the Team Burnaby Advanced Training string this month and has settled into the kennel nicely. She is making friends with the other dogs in the kennel and has enjoyed rooming with Mit-Blue. Lotus is such a love bug! She just wants to be around humans and is always onboard for a bum scratch. Lotus has a lot of nice defaults and is currently working on being more comfortable with people entering her space quickly in mask and some noises she is unfamiliar with. We are excited to spend more time getting to know this peppy and are looking forward to seeing where training takes her! Thank you to Team Lotus for all the love and hard work you have put into raising her; you should be very proud of her!
