MARA continues to learn and grow with her skills. She took to walking/running next to the power chair nicely and loves to zip around with her handler on chair runs up Cariboo Hill. Mara is very eager to please and is picking up skills quickly. She loves skills where she gets to use her paws and particularly excels at ‘button’ and ‘open the door’! She has begun to be able to grab the dumbbell firmly and can even pick it up off the floor now. Great work, Mara!
