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
