Suzuki continues to plug away at her service dog skills and public manners in preparation for her preplacement test. This isn’t a chore for Suzuki, though, because she loves to take any chance she can get closer to her person and show off how sweet and smart she is. Her favourite skill right now is providing deep pressure while Miranda lays down – Suzuki tries to cover as much of Miranda as possible like a black and tan weighted blanket with a cold, wet nose.

  • Skills being learned: body handling skills, turn around, retrieving her leash, deep pressure, anxiety alerts.
  • Recent field trips: Chinook Center Mall, Lowes, Superstore.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Suspicion vocalizing
  • Advanced training location: Calgary

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