Moriah has been spending the beginning days of “spring” in Calgary by keeping her hearing dog skills sharp – and she sure is on point! She will leave playing with friends in the training center or her bed to alert Miranda that her phone is going off or that there is an alarm, which has Miranda impressed. When she’s not working on her hearing alerts, she keeps her public access skills, like cooperative grooming and polite greetings, ready for test day and her eventual placement with a client.
- Skills being learned: Doorbell alerts, alerting in on beds and couches, timer, fire alarm, phone ringing, keys dropped, find my phone alert
- Recent field trips: Marlborough Mall, PetSmart, Chasin Tails
- Possible behavior challenges: high prey drive, motivated by sights and sounds in her environment
- Advanced training location: Calgary
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Moriah!
