This far away mop of fur is Sebastian! He is a Training Camp graduate who is back for some Continuing Education with Donnie. Sebastian has a very important job of being a service dog, so refreshers help him keep his manners sharp. A young dog like Sebastian is still learning and can make mistakes, but that’s ok. When he forgets his manners, we are here to remind him and show him the same rules always apply.
Sebastian is continuing to socialize to new people, places, and things. He gets lots of practice while working with Donnie, and Chris and Hailey, the trainers at Hadnot Creek Kennels. Working with different people is good for any dog, especially a service dog, so they continue to follow calm, relaxed energy. Here he is holding a sit from a distance. Just because his handler isn’t right by his side doesn’t mean he needs to do anything. His job is to stay in one spot. What a good boy!
