SHALE has been spending the dog days of summer keeping her Hearing dog skills sharp – and she sure is on point! She will leave playing with friends in the training center or run from another floor of the house to warn her trainer that the smoke detector is going off, which has Miranda pretty impressed. When she is not working on her Hearing alerts, she is keeping her public access skills like cooperative grooming and polite greetings ready for test day and her eventual placement with a client.

  • Skills being learned: Door knocks, fire alarm, key drops, public access test skills
  • Recent field trips: Rockyview Hospital, Leap N Learn Preschool, Market Mall
  • Possible behavior challenges: Nothing specific to note
  • Advanced training location: Calgary
  • Potential career path: Hearing

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