Puppy training to be an avalanche rescue dog
PHOENIX, Az. - Hagerty takes Ava along with her on daily patrols, allowing her to become adjusted to the slopes and putting her in her backpack when she gets tired. Ava plays games to help her associate human scents with hard play, and is getting more comfortable with odd sights like skiers and chair lifts. Right now even the snow is a bit puzzling to a puppy, but Ava is finding it a perk of the job.
