Mercedes has been getting out and about to practise her public access skills some more this month. She’s been focusing on really polishing up her “leave-it” for food on the floor and for fun critters like squirrels. She is doing a great job of working on these trickier spots and transferring her focus to various handlers! Mercedes has also been improving her latency for alerts when out and about. She’s gotten a lot more confident and quick!
