Dembre's First AT Report

We got our first official report from Dembre's trainer, Adrena, today. She said that he is doing fine. I mentioned a little while ago that Dembre barked at a stuffed lion. They tested him on leash with different "novel" stuffed items. She said that he was reluctant, but did not vocalize or and overcame his uncertainty! I'll hope he continues to do well! She said that he is not extremely responsive when it comes to voice corrections, but that listens extremely well with a leash correction. I can only hope and pray that he does fine for the rest! Let's hope that I don't get the release call!!!!!

 Last summer Dembre didn't even fit in his puppy cape. Now he is in AT with the hope of becoming a service dog!!!!
Our program manager said that we would never get a report that we liked, so I was thrilled that Dembre is still in AT and that he doesn't seem to be on the verge of release!
