Dog Of The Month - Orion Nicholson

Dog Of The Month - Orion Nicholson

Orion came to 4 Paws Academy Home of: The Upbeat K9 over 2 years ago. Although he only attends Day School once a week now, he has cruised through the first, second and now almost the third level of pet obedience! A couple of Beth’s goals were to get Orion more socialized with people and to have him become mindful on and off leash. He has surpassed her initial expectations here at Day School and we are always trying to find new ways to challenge him. Beth has worked with him in many different situations and now he is a wonderful boy she is comfortable taking anywhere. Beth also works with Orion at the local 4H dog club and uses him as a great illustration for kids learning how to work with dogs. Soon we hope to have Orion complete our CGC class and start competing in AKC obedience! Congratulations Orion!
