Ivy is a 6 mo. old female Labrador Retriever mix.  She arrived in the program on 2-12-20.  If you would be interested in adopting Ivy when she completes the program, please contact her Rescue, Lab Rescue LRCP, at https://www.lab-rescue.org/

Week 1.  Ivy is a very sweet and loving puppy who has already settled in to her new environment.  She knows nothing and will be learning basic obedience and training while in the program.

Week 2.  Ivy is a very balanced dog!  She is very sociable and well behaved for her age.  She doesn't display any anxiety issues.  Her Handler says she does show the beginning stages of guarding issues with food and toys (she reacted to her Handler over a ball stuffed with treats and her food bowl).  Her training will be focused on eliminating the guarding behavior and strengthening her basic obediance skills.  Her Handler says she knows the cues/commands sit, down and paw.  He will be training her on the rest of the cues/commands and sharpen her response on the cues she knows.
