VELVET II worked hard with Team Burnaby to help reduce her suspicion/alert barking and we have seen her make some nice progress in this area! To best support Velvet’s training, she travelled to Calgary late this month and has joined Miranda’s advanced training string. She is getting to know Miranda and the Calgary crew, and we are excited to see how her advanced training journey continues!

  • Skills being learned: Foundation service skills, refinement of all basic obedience
  • Recent field trips: Flight from Vancouver to Calgary, various field trips with advanced sitters and her new trainer Miranda
  • Possible behavior challenges: Suspicion/alert barking
  • Advanced training location: Calgary/Burnaby
  • Potential career path: Assistance Dog

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