Tundra is currently with his puppy raiser. He is being taught a foundation of house manners and cues, for becoming a well-socialized part of the community.
All of the training and care provided to each dog would not be possible without the support of generous volunteers and donors.

Tundra is such a smart little puppy! He loves to learn, especially since treats are always involved. He is already excelling at “sit”, loose leash walking and responding to his name. He loves being around his people and toys, so we are working on being more independent and comfortable in the crate. He is growing so fast and has quickly become one of the biggest pups in his litter. He is still figuring out how to control his long legs which is quite amusing to watch!
Tundra is 6 months old now and is growing into a lovely dog! He has been acing his public outings and is a pro at calm greetings now. He has picked up on his new cues very quickly and we are working on refining them more each day. He loves playing with other dogs and is slowly learning to settle around them when it is not playtime. He has become a great cuddler the last couple of months and will often curl up with his humans on the floor at night.
Tundra is 9 months old and is a very big boy now at a whopping 73lbs (and still growing)! He has gone on lots of new adventures including multiple dog swaps, to the movies, on a train, bus and subway in Toronto and to teach a Girl Guide troop about NSD. He was such a great ambassador for NSD on all occasions and continues to show me how far his skills have come. He is a rockstar out in public and we are starting to present him with even harder distractions. At home, he is working on his “mat” duration and good house manners.
Tundra turned one year old on May 23rd! He is really starting to mature and continues to impress me with his patience and obedience when working. We are working hard on loose leash walking when on his flat collar and keeping his sniffing to a minimum which is slowly but surely getting better. He has also been going out to dine on patios and has done well at settling and not being vocal, something that I never thought was possible when he was younger. I am excited to spend the next few months polishing his skills before he moves on to his adult raiser.
Tundra has been accepted into NSD University as part of our 2023 Spring class!
