Training Updates

Having this little pup in our home for the last week has been an absolute joy. She is irresistibly adorable, quick to catch on and oh so curious! She has already caught on to house training and will ask to go out when she needs to! Right now we’re working on learning our down without a cue and mastering our sits. We’re confident she will excel as a service dog one day!

NSD Epoxy is growing so much! She is a sassy, headstrong little pup and her personality shines through every single day. She is a star at loose leash walking and makes our walks very enjoyable. We are working on body handling right now so she can remain calm when being groomed because she is currently so so so excited by all humans.

Epoxy (or Popsy, as we call her) is doing so well! She’s still as spunky as ever, and working on settling in exciting environments, but we’re seeing progress every day. She recently made friends with a family cat and did so well at respecting their space and playing gently.
