Violin has completed her training and is waiting for placement


Training Status Update: 12/3/22

Violin is well on her way to pre-testing. She is doing great and enjoys the scent work. When she knows her time to train is closing in, she will sit up in her kennel and stare at the training room until it’s her turn.

Violin has begun her final testing. She has a great nose and is quick to find the target odor.



Training Status Update: 11/3/22

Violin has been introduced to her first decoy and she is already showing she has an awesome nose by zooming past the decoy to get to the target odor.
