VESPER is working on her skills for clients with various needs, including ambulatory clients and a client who uses a manual chair. She is focusing on polishing her skills with her handler walking. She has been working on building strength for carrying grocery bags and holding various object while standing still. She likes action and moving, so this is tricky! She has been doing well spending some time with different handlers and continues to practice her manners and default behaviors with Ashley and her sitter George. When she isn’t working on skills with Ashley, Vesper is practicing her obedience with kennel coordinator Jessica and training buddies Skaha, Winnie and Mara.
- Skills being learned: Practicing skills learned so far, default check in for various distractions.
- Recent field trips: Metrotown Mall, Canadian Tire, She’s Fit Gym and various training field trips with Ashley.
- Possible behavior challenges: Vocalizing when curious.
- Potential career path: Service
