NSD Bolt

Bolt 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.

Training Updates

Bolt is highly motivated and loves training. He learns very quickly. He has already made significant progress on eye contact, sit, down, release, drop it, leave it, loose leash walking (without distractions), and walking up & down the stairs. He is comfortable with his jacket and quickly gets into his gentle leader – learned in one day! Bolt is an energetic and confident puppy. We are currently working on staying focused in distracting environments.

We are currently working on loose leash working in distracting environments. Bolt does quite well in indoor busy environments once settled and is confident with stairs. He also recently learned the command “under” which he picked up on almost immediately!

Bolt is in the process of learning “step”, and of course, he is catching on quickly! Bolt will soon be heading to his adult raiser to continue work on his loose leash walking and excitability around other people & dogs. He is very sweet and loves everyone.
