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

Wicklow is a happy and energetic little pup who puts everything she has into all she does. Wicklow has become quite skilled at loose leash walking and is now practising this skill with increased distractions. She just got her jacket to wear in public spaces and she has had a couple of outings in it so far. We recently walked around the dog-friendly village of Bayfield and Wicklow did so well, remaining focused amidst all the people and dog distractions.
Wicklow is an exuberant, active and delightful girl who is always up for a public outing, a training session or a snuggle. She loves to be with her people and plays hard at home with her toys and chews but is focused and all business when she is in her jacket while out in public. Wicklow’s self-confidence has grown tremendously over the past few months. Wicklow is currently working on calmly greeting visitors who come to the door and decreasing distractions in the community.
Wicklow is 11 months old now and a petite girl at 52 lbs. Wicklow continues to do well with her skill development in public. She is not phased by various “under footings”, busy kids around her and skateboards. At home, she continues to work on reactive barking at the neighbour’s dogs barking and the mail carrier. Wicklow has improved nicely with greeting visitors at the door. She is a fun girl who loves to learn!
Wicklow has been accepted into NSD University as part of our 2023 Spring class!
