I’m a tall, 18-month-old Lab mix girl that’s now attending classes so I can present myself in a ladylike manner. After being dropped off (dumped), found, and finally brought to TALGV, I needed help settling down. I am learning how much fun and relaxing it is to sniff out treats that have been well hidden throughout the room. Even though it seems like a game, I get instant rewards for a job well done. I’m becoming comfortable with each of my trainers who reinforce (non-verbally) the basic commands I’m being taught, like sit, wait, find it, catch, down, and say hello. It seems I’m not only good looking but I’m also intelligent. I’m hopeful that, with continued training, someone will notice me. If you’re willing and patient, that someone could be you.
