CIRQUE is learning anxiety interruption cues for a potential career as a PTSD Service dog and especially loves to rest her chin on her handler’s lap. She is a happy worker and enjoys going out on field trips. When she is not working, she loves to chase Crystal around the play yard with a toy in her mouth!
- Skills being learned: “Nudge”, “come visit”, “my lap”, maintaining public access manners and basic obedience.
- Recent field trips: Ikea, PetSmart, 6th and 6th New Westminster, Lougheed Mall.
- Possible behavior challenges: Prey drive, suspicion barking.
- Potential career path: PTSD
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Cirque!
