ZARIA continues to learn and grow in advanced training. She is showing lots of improvement in her retrieve skills and is learning to maintain her ‘hold’ even when she is moving around. Zaria is a confident pup who takes everything in stride, whether it be a particularly complicated retrieve or a change in primary handlers. Right now, she is working with her new weekend sitter Kailea on impulse control games; living with an energetic cat means training never stops!

  • Skills being learned: Sharpening all learned skills, proofing ‘hold’ when moving her feet, maintaining basic obedience and public access manners.
  • Recent field trips: Lougheed Mall, Ikea, PetSmart, 8 Rinks, Trout Lake, Canada Games Pool, various training field trips.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Jumping onto people when she is excited, olfactory distraction, overly interested in small fast-moving animals including birds.
  • Potential career path: Service
