ARIES is always keen to work and likes to try to figure out new skills. Sometimes Aries gets impatient for his turn or attention and will vocalize, so he is working on settling while his handler is busy with other tasks or dogs. He is working on calming down his energy to build a reliable hold for retrieve and it is starting to come around nicely! We are excited to see what we can channel Aries’ passion into!
- Skills being learned: Practice of obedience and default behaviors, introduction to various mobility service dog foundations, intro to retrieve
- Recent field trips: Central Park, Robert Burnaby Park and various others
- Possible behavior challenges: Pulling on leash to sniff, impatience
- Advanced training location: Burnaby
- Potential career path: Assistance Dog
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Aries!
