VELVET II is really getting into the swing of things. She has been busy growing the foundation skills necessary to becoming a Service Dog and was very happy to find out that the game of tug features prominently in advanced training. She is also loving the trips to the off-leash area where she can run with her sister Linen and other new training buddies Meeka and Shale.

  • Skills being learned: Nose targeting, movement skills, retrieving
  • Recent field trips: Marlborough Mall, off leash areas
  • Possible behavior challenges: Alert barking, can be unsure in new environments
  • Advanced training location: Calgary
  • Potential career path: Assistance Dog

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