Cassie on a Canine Training Outing being exposed to the Amtrak train. A positive association is created by giving Cassie a food reward as she sits calmly as the train pulls out of the station. Good girl!

Cassie has been hard at work learning to ignore birds. Before working on this distraction, a lot of time was spent on building Cassie’s engagement and self control. The first step was to get Cassie to sit still in the presence of birds and not attempt to chase them. After several exposures to birds this month, the next step was to get her to ignore the birds completely and stay engaged with her Canine Training Partner. This spunky,sweet and petite Silver Lab is making great progress!

Cassie spent time in many restaurants to learn appropriate public behavior. She is learning to stay down under the table or chair and not eat things off the ground. Cassie is highly intelligent and learns behaviors and expectations quickly.
