BURKE has been working hard and napping hard in his usual style. He is starting to generalize his special skills to more handlers in preparation for his pre-placement test. We are still waiting for a chance to retake the test so we can start the process of getting him matched with a client.

  • Skills being learned: Hand signals, anxiety interruptions, body blocking, ‘light’, ‘switch’.
  • Recent field trips: Downtown Calgary, The Camera Store, Petland, Cabela’s, Calgary Pet Expo.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Some cape sensitivity, olfactory and dog distraction.
  • Potential career path: PTSD or AFD

Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Burke!
