November 2023 Pupdate for Sapphire

Posted 11/16/2023

Hello! Sapphire and I just met a few days ago for Week 1 of training - Yay! She is an energetic and engaging girl. She is always looking for the next behavior to earn a kibble and it is very fun to work with. This week, we practiced learning the clicker, following collar cues, and ignoring distractions. She also got to try on her harness for the first time and begin some light training in it. After a training session, Sapphire enjoys a play session or chewing a Nylabone while I hold it.
