GROOVY is eking out all the summer fun that he possibly can before the weather changes. We have been busy with targeted field trips and expanding Groovy’s skill repertoire. He is really coming along with his bracing skills and we are exploring counterbalance training with him and beginning to put some polish on his retrieving and tugging which are definitely his favorite tasks to perform.
- Skills being learned: Bracing skills, retrieving, ‘light’, ‘tug’, ‘up’
- Recent field trips: Leap N Learn, Camper’s Village, off-leash areas, Petland
- Possible behavior challenges: Can be worried about working around dropped food, body handling sensitivity
- Advanced training location: Calgary
- Potential career path: Assistance Dog
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Groovy!
