VELVET II’S barking at unseen noises continues to reduce. Since she was doing well in her first pre-advanced sitter’s home, we decided to try a different sitter’s environment to see how she would do. So far, so good! Velvet has been doing a lovely job of settling into the new environment and has been rocking her obedience practice. She is an eager worker with great focus whether it is a shopping trip or a walk in the woods!
