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!
