Vespa II continues to be a goofball who loves to get pets and scratches. She has been introduced to some skills like “visit” and loves practicing ways to interact that end in getting some pets! Vespa continues to work on and improve on settling and waiting for her turn when her handler is busy, as well as working on calmer greetings. She has also been going on various field trips to work on her handler focus in environments that have lots of scents that she would love to sniff! Vespa is coming along nicely and loves when she gets the bonus reward of a sniff break for all that hard work, not sniffing until given permission! Lovely work, Vespa!
