SPIRIT III is settling well into with advanced training in Calgary and is having a great time playing with her new dog friends Webber, Burke, Hammond and Puma. She has been spending lots of time perfecting her obedience skills and working on confidence building activities like obstacle courses and movement skills. Spirit is constantly receiving compliments for her sweet nature and soulful face. She was a big hit at the senior’s care facility that she visited this month. Her lovely off switch and amazing manners are a credit to her raisers and they should be very proud their hard work!

  • Skills being learned: Body targeting, movement skills, chin targeting to laps, basic obedience with food around.
  • Recent field trips: Silvera Seniors Centre, Chasin Tails, PetCetera, Chinook Centre Mall, off leash dog park.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Low motivation for food in distracting environments, some cape sensitivity, some worry about unfamiliar dogs, easily startled by loud noises.
  • Potential career path: AFD

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