ZARIA has been Margaret’s car buddy this month as Margaret performs some social-distancing post-team training follow up visits with some of the recent teams who have already or are completing team training. Zaria has mellowed out in the past few months and has really matured in both her skills and her basic obedience and default behaviors. Once COVID-19 restrictions lift and staff feels comfortable doing so, we hope to get Zaria out for a pre-placement public access test to see where she is at and if she is ready for placement sometime this year.

  • Skills being learned: Practicing all learned skills.
  • Recent field trips: Currently Not Applicable Due to COVID-19
  • Possible behavior challenges: Jumping onto people when she is excited, chasing hose spray.
  • Advanced training location: Burnaby
  • Potential career path: Assistance Dog

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