MUDGE is continuing to build on her intensity and duration for her anxiety alerts and is transferring that skill to more complex public environments. Adding a new dog to her trainer’s string has given Mudge an opportunity to work through her dog distraction challenges in a familiar environment and she is making solid progress. Her other skills are being fine-tuned and, as always, she is an eager participant in any training opportunity.
- Skills being learned: Strengthening existing skills, anxiety interruption alert.
- Recent field trips: Costco, Firehall Theater, Youth Outreach Center.
- Possible behavior challenges: Impulse control, dog distraction.
