What is really exciting is now Nitro can start training in his Level 4 class for Canine Good Citizen Certification test. Hopefully if he keeps progressing at this rate and matures a little over time then I think we will work towards getting him certified as a Therapy Dog. Since we are so near the Salem VA Medical Center it would be wonderful for Nitro to be a Therapy dog for veterans at the VA. I guess we will have to see where Nitro takes us.

Happy Tails!!! Lexi, Christina and Nitro
From training level 3:
The following photos are of Nitro learning the "wait" or "leave it" command. At first he staired at the little peice of hotdog a lot but now he ignores it completely. These following photos are of the "stairing" stages. I will post a photo and then after the photo I will post the same photo again with my special effects. Enjoy!
(this one is my favorite)
Nitro is so focused. We did this exercise outside at the Valleyview Starbucks. Even though there were people around, he still stayed focused....he is such a good boy. Oh yeah he is now at level 3 in training!
Good boy, Nitro.... Good boy!ReplyDelete
