Week 12
Hope is still practicing her new tricks but she is still eager to learn.  This week Hope met the new dog Dixon for the first time.  She did really well with the first meeting and now has a new friend.  Hope and Dixon did play for a little bit.  Hope spotted a baby crow one day and spent the rest of the day looking for it.  Hope is always looking for new friends whether it be dog, bird, or person.

Week 11
Hope is a wonderful dog who loves to play outdoors. If your looking for a fund, energetic dog Hope is the dog for you! We worked on the trick "spin" and "pray", she is showing great improvements with both.

Week 10
This week we worked on the command "watch me".  We worked on this outside and she did really well.  Hope enjoys chasing the frisbee and does good at catching it in the air.  We also worked on "out".  Hope also likes to watch the birds.  She tries to chase them! Hope truly enjoys the outdoors.

Week 9
Hope is doing really well with her basic commands, sit, down, stay, paw. She enjoys playing fetch and being outside during this warm weather. Hope went swimming for the first time this week. She was a little hesitant at first, but when given a toy to play with, she was happy to be in the water. She can be a little hyper and doesn’t always focus, but she’s still young and her handlers feel she is slowly improving.

Week 8
Hope continues to improve on her “out” command and does well with her basic commands. Her handlers have been working on her focus commands like “watch me” and “touch”. “One things that is really cute about Hope is that she loves to snuggle when she lays down with you. She is a very affectionate dog and just loves everyone. She continues to socialize with the other dogs and is learning to settle down when meeting new dogs.”

Week 7
This week was fun for Hope.  Hope really likes the warm weather.  She likes to play fetch and is doing ok with her "out" command.  Hope is doing very well with basic commands.  She is learning "spin", she almost has it down.  Hope enjoys playing with the other dogs, especially Hunter and Bear.

Week 6
Hope had a great week this week. We have been able to enjoy the nice weather. When we go outside Hope likes to play, alot!  She loves playing fetch and tug and also playing with the other dogs.  Hope always trys to coax the other dogs into playing with her.  She now does all of her basic commands nicely.  We are working on the "out" command when she plays fetch.  She has come a long way but will only drop the toy for a treat. If we don't have a treat she wants to continue to play tug.

Week 5
This week Hope learned how to "leave it".  Not only did she learn it, she does really good!  We alo worked on "wach me" and she also did that well.  Hope's attention issues are quickly  resolving, but still needs fine tuning.

Week 3
Hope had a great week, she has turned into quite the social butterfly!  She loves playing with all of the other dogs and loves greating and meeting all of the new people.  This week Bear and Hope went to the dog yard and played for a really l ong time.  It was really cute and fun to watch.  Hope would crawl under Bears legs and jump over him to get him to keep playing.  It is very inspiring how she doesn't let her disabled leg bother her.  Hope is a great dog!

Week 2
This week was very exciting for Hope, she started it by meeting Jack and Bear.  Hope handled this experience really well. She plays with Bear and really enjoys his company.  Hope learns really quck and is doing well with all of the basic commands.  We have started teaching Hope a trick called spin.  She is still trying to perfect it but we think she'll pick it up in no time!
