This month Mercedes took some time to relax and rest with her advanced sitter to recover from her kennel cough. Once she was better, she was very keen to get back at it! Mercedes has been working away on her sound work and practicing all the practical portions of her skills. She shows an overall calm and steady demeanour except for a few excitable moments. Food on the ground, when unexpected, can still be quite exciting and tempting for her, but she continues to grow in building her calm and ability to leave surprise snacks on the ground alone. Excellent work, Mercedes!

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