Training Updates

Bear is 7 months old already and has settled in nicely with her Puppy Raiser family. She is currently at the Grade School level of her training where she is attending weekly puppy classes and learning new skills at home such as, staying home alone outside of her crate and adding mild distractions to her day (such as the vacuum, other animals, throwing toys, etc.). In a few months, she will begin high school and be one step closer to becoming a Service Dog!

Bear is such a sweet puppy and a huge cuddle bug! She is working very hard on all her skills and continues to practice with added distance and duration. She will continue to practice going out in public settings where there are more distractions as well!

Bear is the sweetest and most loving puppy. She excels at her skills and shows lots of enthusiasm when working! She is so calm in public and loves every adventure we go on!

Bear recently moved to her adult raiser and is doing great! She is a very quiet and sensitive dog and very sweet and gentle. She is cautious in new situations but is very good with all new skills that she tries.

Bear has been accepted into Companion College! She will start her training in the coming month to become a Companion Dog.
