Ayaka has earned her bringsel. This means she is at her point in training where she can now wear this wherever she goes.  This step insures that the dog will not use the bringsel as a toy and only for alerting.  It will be about 4-6 weeks before she begins to pair the picking up the bringsel in association to the scent.  One of our CTP’s Kami, created this photo of Ayaka wearing her bringsel home for the first time.

Scent training – She will be introduced to her first decoy next week.

Dumbbell – Working on consistently holding the dumbbell for an extended period of time. Once she is consistent, she will be transitioned to the bringsel (probably mid next week)
