Training Updates

Kierlin is very playful, LOVES cuddles and playing “puppy puppy” ping pong. She enjoys watching cartoons, we always catch her watching the TV if she hears the funny sounds of a kid’s show. She is doing really well with Sit & Down as well as loose leash walking indoors and is starting to learn loose leash walking outdoors with new distractions. We are working on eye contact before receiving meals, Stay, Kennel, Matt, getting into position on the left side and car rides. She is still learning to get along with the cat. Although, she finally started sleeping through most of the night and having fewer accidents in the house! We just received her vest and gentle leader and went on her first public access outing!

Kierlin is such a good girl and isn’t so little anymore. She has been working really hard and was a great ambassador for NSD when she visited her sponsor Fastenal. She will continue working on perfectly all her basic obedience skills over the next few months and work on new skills like spin and turn.

Kierlin is a very friendly, gentle and cuddly girl. Kierlin is mastering staying calm and relaxed around loud noises and crowds when out in public and she is doing really well. She is learning to remain in a down-stay for longer periods of time on her matt. Kierlin is working on remaining settled around other animals.
