MOCHA has been getting to know her new roommates Vimy and Spartan. She is enjoying having new friends to play with after training! She has also been busy learning new skills. Currently, she is working on anxiety disruptions by nosing her handler’s hands when they start to display higher levels of agitation, such as rubbing the hands together or rubbing hands on legs.
- Skills being learned: Resting her body weight on top of handler when needed, anxiety disruptions with nose nudge.
- Recent field trips: Parksville Library, aquatic center, various other outings.
- Possible behavior challenges: N/A
- Potential career path: PTSD
