Shale is in the fun part of advanced training, where we focus on her diversifying her alerting to sounds and taking those skills on the road. We are also taking advantage of the lovely fall weather and are enjoying taking training to new environments and outdoor locations like the local park. Of course, when you are at the park it can’t be all work, so there are plenty of play breaks with her training mates Maverick, Desi and Suzuki.
