SASSAFRAS is continuing to grow her sound repertoire and working on spacing out sounds. She has also been working on alerting to some sounds in public and is off to a great start with that skill. Really nice work, Sassafras!

  • Skills being learned: Key drop, doorbell, practicing all learned sounds with more space in between alerts.
  • Recent field trips: PetSmart, Ikea, Lougheed Mall, various training field trips.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Default ‘leave it’ for food on the floor when activated.
  • Advanced training location: Burnaby
  • Potential career path: Hearing

Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Sassafras!
