This is Heart N’ Soul’s Pocket Change “Penny” at 4 months of age. Danielle uses clicker/marker training to identify behaviors and they worked on place training, handling/casting, and steadying for retriever field work.

I want to also welcome Danielle Pellicci as a Contributing Author to It’s a Lab Thing. Danielle’s Labs caught my eye and I could just tell that she is a top notch breeder and trainer devoted to bettering the Labrador.
