Smudge, the puppy, has been going through some very unique training lately. Smudge, in all her cuteness, has been training to be a guide dog. When she first arrived, her trainers simply let her explore her new environment. Smudge relaxed as she was passed around to different people, in order to get her used to being around larger groups.
From there Smudge began to learn new skills like going up and down stairs. She always received a kibble treat for her efforts. Smudge was even allowed to try on her guide dog vest for the first time. It fit like a charm. Smudge started to learn how to use her core for balance through different exercises and started learning to give people her full attention.
Smudge was still allowed to be a puppy through her training, by playing with other puppies. Smudge has learned how to wait at doors and not get distracted by things around her. Smudge has learned how to behave properly around other dogs in public. At just fourteen weeks old, Smudge is well on her way to becoming an amazing guide dog!
