MUDGE is eager to work! She is enthusiastic and loves working on her service skills. She has been continuing her retrieve work, especially focusing on keeping objects in her mouth for longer periods of time. Mudge is also working on transferring her obedience and service skills to less experienced handlers.
- Skills being learned: Duration “hold”, verbal cues to distinguish retrieving her leash versus the phone, verbal cues for switching locations in relation to a power chair.
- Recent field trips: Local middle and high schools, life music concert, local skate park, Walmart.
- Possible behavior challenges: Dog distraction, impulse control.
- Potential career path: Service or PTSD
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Mudge!
