This pretty girl has already been deemed "Dainty Paws". She has a little spring in her step when she dances around with a toy in her mouth.

This is how we do it in Fresno!
She’s a natural! Haven’t tried going outside yet- just getting used to them around the house. I bought the socks and I think they help to keep the shoe on and keep them a little more comfortable too.

Scent training – She is nearing final testing. She is currently in what we call pair testing, where she has paired her bringsel aert with the scent and has been picking up her bringsel without needing to be prompted. In pair testing, we are testing over so many sessions if she will continue to pick up the bringsel independently. In this phase, we also prepare them for the final testing.

Parque passed her bringsel test….. you go girl!!

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…… Hayley (trainer)

Parque has a question for you? How can you NOT check your BS when you see this goofy, loveable, bringsel loving face!!!
Training Update 1/13/21
Parque is discriminating between the hot and the decoy. This was her final run with a singular decoy prior to adding a second decoy to the bucket training.
Training Update 1/5/21
Parque has started decoy training and will soon test on her bringsel skills….
Training Update 12/9/2020
Parque is working hard in her training…. check out what she is doing on the links above about our training phases.
Training Status Update 9/30/2020
Parque is on the move again, this time she is starting her “scent” training. D4D also refers to this as bucket training….. she is working hard to learn a certain scent means something.
Training Status Update 9/29/2020
No matter what our dogs are learning, they are ALWAYS having fun. Parque thinks picking up the dumbbell and returning it to the trainer is the BEST….
Training Status Update 9/28/2020
Parque is learning already. We teach our dogs to “bringsel” which is an alert to a low blood sugar. We start with “dumbbell” training, this teaches the dog to hold something in their mouth.
