This month, Oliver has been focusing on movement and leash skills. He has such excellent foundations and skills from puppy raising that his skills are moving along quickly, and he is progressing to the fun stuff faster! Even though Oliver may be one of the youngest dogs in advanced training right now, that sure doesn’t stop him from showing the other dogs how smart he is! His love for work is infectious, and he makes his advanced trainer very happy with how willing he is to try anything she asks. He has shown to be quite motivated and distracted by other dogs so we are working hard on ignoring other dogs and being appropriate around them. We are all excited to see what career Oliver decides he likes best!

  • Skills being Learned: Movement & leash skills, chin target, general obedience, nose targets, cooperative care
  • Recent Field Trips: PetSmart, West Edmonton Mall, IKEA, St Albert Mall, Homesense

We’re so grateful for your support of Advanced Dog Oliver!
