ZARIA continues to progress in her skills. Her ‘hold’ is getting stronger and we are proud of the steps forward she has made recently. Lisa is making a gradual return to training in the next few months. Lisa has spent her training time working with Zaria and has commented on the improvements she can see in Zaria’s retrieve since November. Zaria has returned to Lisa’s advanced training string and will continue to work with Lisa as she gets back into the PADS groove.

  • Skills being learned: Continuing to strengthen ‘hold’, maintaining all existing service skills.
  • Recent field trips: Various outings with training staff and volunteers.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Jumping onto people when she is excited, olfactory distraction, overly interested in small fast-moving animals, some scavenging.
  • Advanced training location: Burnaby
  • Potential career path: Service

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