DAEGAN enjoyed his vacation during the PADS holiday break and got to spend time with two different volunteer families. He enjoyed meeting all the new people and is always excited to make new friends, especially if they will pet him! Daegan is back on the Island with Rob and is focusing on his retrieve skills, particularly taking an item from the hand of a person. Rob is spending lots of time helping build Daegan’s confidence in this skill.
- Skills being learned: Picking up items and holding them steady, maintaining all basic obedience and public access manners.
- Recent field trips: Restaurants, mall, various field trips with advanced sitters during the holiday break.
- Possible behavior challenges: Hesitant to take items from a person’s hand.
- Potential career path: Service
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Daegan!
