Atticus 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.

Atticus is doing amazing at looking at you when his name is called and sitting on command. He is also learning how to behave and stay calm around the rabbits (Oreo and Patches) that live with him in the house. He has such a calm and loving personality and his puppy eyes are absolutely adorable!
Atticus is doing really well with commands. He is still learning to stay focused on training while there are distractions around him and we are working on walking nice and slowly up the stairs. 🙂 The first snow of the year, Atticus was absolutely smitten with it and playing outside in the snow! He is helping with decorating the house for Christmas too. He is such a fun, lovely and cuddly pup that when everyone sees him they immediately fall in love with him and his calm demeanour.
Atticus is doing great with his training! He is learning all new commands (under, spin, turn, leave it…) and staying for longer durations in each. He still loves to cuddle and he has so much fun playing outside.
Atticus has settled into his adult raiser’s home very well and continues to mature into a lovely dog. He just turned one and has been working on new skills like back, touch, and stand.
Atticus has been accepted into NSD University as part of our 2023 Spring class!
