RAINBOW continues to improve on all her skills and now also has a bonus way to say hello called ‘pound it’ where she will bump your fist with her nose to say hello. We are excited to get going on field trips to generalize polishing her obedience to as many scenarios as possible. Rainbow’s infectious energy and goofy personality continue to make her lots of fun to be around and we are hopeful that we will be able to run pre-placement testing for Rainbow in the next few months.
- Skills being learned: Refining of obedience and default behaviors, ‘shake’, ‘visit’
- Recent field trips: New Westminster Quay, 6th and 6th New Westminster, Central Park, Robert Burnaby Park
- Possible behavior challenges: Dog distraction
- Advanced training location: Burnaby
- Potential career path: Assistance Dog
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Rainbow!
