Training Status Update: 1/25/21

Sometimes the best part of the training day is when the dogs get to decompress and socialize with each other. I love watching them just flop down on dog beds together and have a chew fest.

Gus, has been hard at work training. He is currently working through imprinting on the “target odor” and settling on the jar. Keep up the great work, Gus – we’re so proud of your progress!








Training Status Update: 10/14/20

Gus is working on holding the dumbbell while both sitting still and moving towards the trainer.





Training Status Update: 9/28/20

Gus is BUSY…. he loves to learn. Here he is practicing his “scent” work with bucket training….. Hayley (trainer) is standing by to “reward” as soon as Gus makes the right move.





Training Status Update: 9/28/20

Gus is up & running or should we say learning….. Our dogs learn to “bringsel” by starting out with holding a dumbbell, first just opening their mouth to grab and eventually holding for an extended period of time.

Looks like Gus has got this!



Training Status Update: 9/27/20

Welcome Gus…. we are so excited to see what your future holds.
