VESPER has been working on maintaining and further refining all the skills she has learned so far in advanced training. She has also been practicing and sharpening her basic obedience cues and default behaviors such as ‘leave it’. Prior to increased social distancing and self-isolation protocols, Vesper had been working on meet-and-greets, practicing holding her cues and not licking when she is greeted. She has now taken a break from that due to current social distancing restrictions. Vesper looks forward to when she can practice meet and greets again.
