Training Updates

Sandy is 4 months old already and has settled in nicely with her Puppy Raiser family. She is currently at the puppy kindergarten level of her training where she is attending weekly puppy classes and learning new skills at home such as, sit, down, go to mat and loose leash walking. In a few months, she will begin grade school and be one step closer to becoming a Service Dog!

Sandy has really made herself at home. She enjoys going out on many different adventures now that restrictions have begun to lift. We have continued to work on our confidence and skills including sit, down, and loose-leash walking. Sandy has enjoyed exploring various public places and has even started coming to work a few days a week.

Sandy is such a sweet, loving girl. We are continuing to work on our skills at home, along with her confidence in public. She continues to come to work on the weekends and we have gotten into the swing of online school during the week. I can’t wait to see where the next few months take us.
