Now that COVID-19 restrictions have started to gradually ease, IROKO has been taking his skills on the road and we hope to run some pre-placement testing for him in the very near future. In the meantime, there are always skills to continue to fine tune and new cool tricks to learn. Iroko is helping with everything from taking off jackets and shoes to putting items away in bins.
- Skills being learned: Wheelchair pulling, retrieve deliveries, ‘switch’, ‘behind’
- Recent field trips: Marlborough Mall, off leash areas, Chasin Tails
- Possible behavior challenges: Occasional alert barking, dog distraction, sometimes too enthusiastic
- Advanced training location: Calgary
- Potential career path: Assistance Dog
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Iroko!
