GROOVY has been working and playing hard this month. This funny and sweet boy is really blossoming and now that COVID-19 restrictions are gradually easing up, he is taking his skills on the road. He is really showing that he loves learning service dog task like turning on lights and picking up dropped items. While he likes learning all new skills, he has also communicated that ‘tug’ might be his favorite pastime in the entire world!

  • Skills being learned: Bracing skills, retrieve, ‘light’
  • Recent field trips: Marlborough Mall, off leash areas, Chasin Tails
  • 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!
