It took a lot of work to get this picture of Flavia in front of the Christmas tree. She absolutely hates the tree. I suppose in some cases that would be good because certainly she won’t be bothering it.

Flavia has also been introduced to her first decoy!

Flavia’s been working through added distractions in the scent training room to help build her confidence and duration at the target odor. check out the video
