VIMY II recently got to visit Colliery Dam. He got the opportunity to meet many other dogs at the off-leash dog park right off the water near the dam. He also went swimming and found many sticks to play with, which of course kept his handler busy as we don’t want the dogs to eat any sticks. Vimy also got to practice good leash manners and obedience when a volunteer handled him through an obstacle course where the volunteer held a tray with 2 cups of water. He did a great job!

  • Skills being learned: Retrieve, ‘tug’ to close doors, ‘step.’
  • Recent field trips: Downtown Nanaimo, Colliery Dam
  • Possible behavior challenges: Sometimes lacks motivation to complete more difficult tasks.
  • Potential career path: Service
