MALLEE has had a busy month making sure that she will be ready to conquer the world once public outings are allowed again. She has been fine tuning her skills around closing doors and working on discriminating between cues even when she is excited to work. When she is not working, Mallee has been showing all the boys in advanced training who’s the fastest, toughest dog on the team by beating them soundly in their games of tug-o-war (#girlpower).
- Skills being learned: Retrieving, ‘tug’, ‘push’, ‘open the door’, wheelchair skills.
- Recent field trips: Currently Not Applicable Due to COVID-19.
- Possible behavior challenges: Cautious about moving objects, loud noises, and stairs.
- Advanced training location: Calgary
- Potential career path: Assistance Dog
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Mallee!
