The Adventures of Alaric Part 4

The Adventures of Alaric Part 4

By Michele Forto

Today, Alaric visited a few places.  He went with me to the park, Petsmart and the mall.  We also stopped by our local travel agency.

Alaric is recovering from his neuter surgery and mild infection.

His training is progressing well.  Alaric participated in Canine Good Citizen this past weekend where he successfully performed all ten commands.  He is not ready for the test just yet; he still startles at certain noises and doesn’t like black dogs.

Alaric had a short visit with his handler – who wasn’t feeling well.  He comforted her and reassured her which proved very helpful.  He now recognizes her neighborhood and is very excited upon our arrival.  In fact he was so excited to get to her house today that he ran around and bumped his eye on a table and my shin-bone.

Alaric has completed the first 4 weeks of his Camp Works board and train and is polishing his obedience skills and building confidence all while working on public access training.
