WOODSTOCK is back in the advanced kennel for onsite training and has been having a good time exploring skills. He is still deciding if he is interested in retrieve and other skills, but he sure does like getting kibbles when he tries! He is going out and about practicing his obedience and default behaviors in various places and working on ignoring exciting smells. It is tricky, but he is getting better and better at refocusing and ignoring smells!

  • Skills being learned: Practice of obedience and default behaviors
  • Recent field trips: Ikea, Robert Burnaby Park, Metrotown Mall and others
  • Possible behavior challenges: occasional scent distraction
  • Advanced training location: Burnaby
  • Potential career path: Assistance Dog

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