CRYSTAL has been working on behavior adjustment training and is getting stronger at self-regulating when surprised by strange dogs appearing or barking. She has been working on retrieving and steadying her hold when in exciting scenarios on campus and in public. She’s very good at retrieving objects from tricky places like under benches!
- Skills being learned: “Take it to…,” “up” durations.
- Recent field trips: 6th & 6th New Westminster, Lougheed Mall, Trout Lake.
- Possible behavior challenges: Vocalizing at dogs or at unseen dogs barking.
- Potential career path: Service, PTSD Service or AFD
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Crystal!
