Training Updates

Truman has settled well into his new routine! He has mastered his ‘sit’ and is getting the hang of ‘down’. He’s a pro at sleeping and can be found snoring away in his kennel after he’s had enough cuddling or playtime. His favourite time of the day is when he gets his meals which he eats in about one minute or less! And while they aren’t 100% sure of each other just yet, I’m sure he will soon be best buds with his cat friend, Wilson.

Along with adding new cues (stay, up, off, leave it, drop, matt), Truman has received his jacket and has been excelling with his public outings! He can calmly navigate different environments such as grocery stores, malls, coffee shops and restaurants with confidence and ease. His calm and friendly demeanour makes him a favourite with anyone that we come across! He continues to work hard to solidify his understanding of the commands being asked and has made wonderful progress in his classes.

Truman is 9 months old now! He just entered high school and is working on refining his skills before learning new ones! During high school, he will be working on being more independent at home and staying focused while out in public.

Truman has been making amazing progress and has really matured over the past couple of months! He is working on nailing all of his commands for longer durations and in busier settings. He is such a happy boy and loves to meet new people when we are out and about. He continues to excel in his classes and whenever he is in a new environment.

Truman has been accepted into NSD University as part of our 2023 Spring class!
