Pilot is currently with his adult raiser. He will continue to work hard on generalizing his cues and house manners in a new environment, with a new handler. This stage of training is to prepare them for University.

Training Updates

Pilot is a happy playful fellow. He loves playing catch me if you can with his Kong in the backyard. His house manners are excellent and he responds quickly to the basic commands almost all of the time. . He is learning what is appropriate behaviour when living with cats and has done remarkably well in a short period of time. Pilot has improved in being less distracted by people and birds during our walks, and we are now focusing on ignoring other dogs.

Pilot is a wonderful dog. He is loving, friendly and calm. Pilot now gets along well with both our cats; indoors and outdoors. He has joined me on several outings to grocery stores, various malls, and a couple of family visits. Pilot has been well behaved in all our public outings. We even had an opportunity to use an elevator. Lately, we have been focusing our training on the commands stand, back, under, turn (circle clockwise) and spin (circle counter-clockwise). When we are walking in the neighbourhood many of the people we encounter comment on how well behaved he is on leash.

Pilot has been accepted to NSD University! He will be starting training on November 22nd.
