Marianna had a great week. Her handlers worked on her commands in different locations and she did really well. She got plenty of socialization with other handlers and did her commands for them as well. Marianna is curious and likes to sniff at everything. Her temperament is awesome and she is pretty much the Queen of all Divas! She loves to run to the toy box and will at times put her whole body in the box to find what she wants. She is very friendly and well loved. Marianna has brought smiles to her handler’s face daily. What a joy she is!
Marianna continues to do really great and this week spent time with other handlers to continue to socialize - they all reported that she behaved very well. She knows all her commands with and without treats, and is improving with her “stay” after sitting or lying down. Next week her handler will be trying her commands in the busier environment of the gym to see how she does. Marianna is getting plenty of exercise, though at times she’d rather laze around! She enjoys playing off-leash in the dorms.
Marianna has had a great week. She has been socializing with her alternate handlers and has done well in several different situations. She is great with everyone who has her. Her trainer says she is such a happy girl.
She knows all her commands with kibble, but needs a little work on her sit, down, and heel commands.
Marianna has been getting plenty of exercise walking down at the rec. and playing with her toys in the dorm. She loves attention, and will lie contentedly in the bed area to be groomed.
Marianna has bonded well with her new handlers, and they say that she is a very content girl who absolutely loves playing with toys, especially her favorite stuffed, plush football.
She knows all her basic commands, but sometimes needs a little firmness of direction. She did really well going through her commands without kibble, despite some distractions.
Marianna goes outside for fresh air and exercise, but she loves the cool indoors, and would much rather play inside than outside. She loves attention and gets along great with the other dogs.
Marianna was a little timid at first with her new handlers, but accompanied one of them to the library where she works, and found it very exciting. So much so that she didn’t want to bed or sit down. She was a little distracted by the CCI lab puppies barking in the classroom next door but wasn’t at all bothered by the lab sitting near her. The next day, her other handler took her to self-study classes and, although again a little timid at first, soon lay down within a couple of minutes and relaxed.
Marianna walks well and loves to be cuddled and brushed and having her ears cleaned She goes crazy over squeaky toys, but has no trouble with dropping a toy when told to do so. She also loves to play outside.
She is really good at doing all of her commands with kibble and now needs to work on doing them without! Her new trainers have already fallen in love with Marianna and say she is an awesome dog - very sweet and loving...and she really likes to give kisses.
