Within the last month, WINNIE has really hit her stride with her skills.  She has now learned several special skills and is able to pick a dumbbell off the floor and hold it in her mouth for a few seconds!  She is on a roll and we hope to see it continue.  Winnie is also working on her loose leash walking, which is still a challenge for her.  She has been improving on her barking at people entering spaces and we hope to be able to see this continue and generalize to other spaces. Nice work Winnie!

  • Skills being learned: Loose leash walking, retrieve foundations, quiet when hearing door knocks or people entering a room, various special skills.
  • Recent field trips: Ikea, PNE, Skytrain ride, various training field trips.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Pulling on leash, barking at the door.
  • Potential career path: Service, PTSD or AFD

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