Letty and Avery

From trainer Letty, who is working with SDIT, Avery, who will be her own mobility Service Dog. Letty writes:

“I was doing training with SDIT Avery today. She is six months old now, and I wanted to work on “leave it” and down/stay. She’s constantly blowing my mind!! First I put a plate of food down on the floor that I’d just eaten from. She showed a little bit of interest in it, but then after being given the “leave it” command, walked away totally ignoring it. So, I put her in a down/stay, and put a small piece of potato on her foot. She kept it there for about five minutes. This not so little puppy is amazingly smart!”
