Training Updates

Wish is settling in well at her new home. She has done well with her sit and down and we are now working on her leave it and drop it. She can be a ball of energy at times playing with her toys and chasing her tail, but also easily settles. She just loves snuggles and belly rubs!

Wish is 6 months old! She is a very silly girl who loves to play. She is working hard on her skills and impulse control while out in public.

Wish is 9 months old now! She just transitioned into high school and is learning new skills like walking on her handler’s right side. At this point in her training, Wish is learning how to be more independent and settle without much support from her handler. So far she has been doing great in high school!

Wish has grown so much over the last couple of months. She loves being around people and has been working so hard to contain her excitement as she greets someone new. She has been working hard to improve her loose leash walking and avoid dog distractions on her neighbourhood walks. She is so well behaved when she comes to the office for work and settles in so well. She loves to cuddle, especially while having her chin or belly rubbed!

Wish is being welcomed into one of our upcoming classes at Companion College!
