NSD Higbee

Higbee 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.

All of the training and care provided to each dog would not be possible without the support of generous volunteers and donors.

Training Updates

Higbee is a very gentle but playful pup. He absolutely loves to snuggle and is very obedient. He’s responsive to his cues and even off-leash is quite attentive to his walker. While he doesn’t naturally go to his crate and prefers sleeping on his dog bed or on my carpet, he is very comfortable being left in a crate for a couple of hours and doesn’t try to burst out when the door is opened. He is currently working on being calm when meeting other dogs in public. His biggest accomplishment is doing a 50-yard recall on a football field and running alongside me (on leash) on a track without being distracted.
