In September, Mercedes practiced working on her usual challenges of ignoring finding food on the floor and squirrels. She is getting better and better at leaving those surprise snacks on the ground alone! Squirrels will take a bit more time not to be so interesting, but she’s getting there! Mercedes has also been working on the nitty-gritty refinements of sound work and continues to develop those skills. She continues to impress with her ability to transfer her skills and focus to other handlers quickly. Excellent work, Miss Sadies!

We are incredibly grateful for the support for Advanced Dog Mercedes.
