VALOUR’S skills and retrieve are looking great and now that COVID-19 restrictions have started to gradually ease up, she has started to work on them in public spaces again. So far, she has been confidently transferring her skills such as retrieve and ‘button’ to being out and about and we are constantly impressed with Valour’s consistency and drive to do her best. We are excited to get her practicing in hopes of running pre-placement testing in the next few months!
