SUNNY II has been practicing his social distancing with his advanced sitter. Sunny and his sitter spent a sunny Sunday working on the heating systems for the gardens of a long-time client of Sunny’s sitter, where he grows bedding plants for Garden Works and nurseries all over the Lower Mainland! As per current protocols, they kept their distance from other people and kept themselves and others safe! The PADS staff are working on tools to support the continuation of placements and team trainings during this difficult time and we hope for Sunny to be one of the dogs who finds a match in the next few months!

  • Skills being learned: Maintaining all skills learned, including basic obedience and house manners.
  • Recent field trips: No field trips to public places as per COVID-19 protocol
  • Possible behavior challenges: Arousal around dogs or toys being tossed.
  • Advanced training location: Burnaby
  • Potential career path: AFD

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