This month, Scotia II continued to work remotely with her sitter, and she also worked at the Burnaby campus to do some advanced training on-site for a week. Scotia showed she is a sweet and goofy girl with excellent loose-leash walking and obedience skills. She did have some trouble with alert and suspicion barking in some scenarios. When Scotia felt uncertain about people or dogs, she would bark or vocalize to let us know how she felt. She has been exploring things like DMT, and some kibble scatter games to help work through her feelings. Scotia likes to sniff, so she really enjoyed the kibble scatter as a way to decompress!

Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Scotia II!
