WINNIE spent some of June training time working on site with Ashley and the rest out with a new advanced dog sitter to test out new environments. She has been having a blast with her new sitter and they have become fast friends. Winnie continues to work on her loose-leash walking and is making progress, especially with the addition of some new gear. We hope to have Winnie pop by every so often for a field trip with Ashley to keep working towards a possible placement.
- Skills being learned: Practice of all basics with new handler
- Recent field trips: Various outing as needed with sitter
- Possible behavior challenges: Not consistently maintaining loose leash zone, vocalizing when excited/frustrated/activated
- Advanced training location: Burnaby
- Potential career path: Assistance Dog
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Winnie!
