DODGER II has been working hard on all his online homework with his advanced sitter on Vancouver Island. They have practiced things like heel and sides in tight spaces, loose leash walking over kibbles, duration “rest” and yield to leash collar pressure. All the skills are looking sharp! He will be headed over to the mainland soon to work with Ashley to continue his advanced training on site and go on some field trips!
- Skills being learned: Practice of obedience and default behaviors
- Recent field trips: Various with sitter
- Possible behavior challenges: Body handling, lunging on leash when excited
- Advanced training location: Burnaby
- Potential career path: Assistance Dog
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Dodger!
