DAEGAN continues to work on his retrieve skills and is progressing well. He is still sometimes hesitant to complete retrieve tasks and we are still considering all career options for him as he has many strengths that would make him suitable for various different careers. The question of which career he would excel in still remains at this stage. Daegen recently enjoyed a trip to Moorecroft Regional Park where he participated in a recall race with his roommates and almost won against Vimy!
