MUDGE has been spending the month of May teaching Tommy about the joys of not chasing city rabbits. She is thrilled to be earning kibbles for something that she would do anyways, and Tommy was able to have a social learning experience. Mudge also spent part of the month of training in a very dense urban environment. Challenges included emergency services, police incidents, dense traffic, unpredictable people, and many edible temptations on the ground. Despite her skills ignoring rabbits, her biggest challenge this month was ignoring delicious Canada Goose poop. Mudge is keeping her skills sharp and hopes to be matched soon.
