MUDGE continues to do well in her training and is scheduled to run through some assessments with Margaret to test her suitability as a PTSD service dog or an AFD. Mudge has come a long way since she first started advanced training. She has settled into Dana’s home environment and is getting along well with all her doggy roommates. Mudge is a sweet and gentle pup who is always happy to lay her head on a lap for a nice ear scratch. We hope to run Mudge through pre-placement testing soon!
- Skills being learned: ‘Chin’, ‘my lap’, anxiety interruption behaviors, maintaining all learned skills and obedience.
- Recent field trips: Various training field trips with Dana and advanced training volunteers.
- Possible behavior challenges: Impulse control, dog distraction.
- Potential career path: PTSD or AFD
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Mudge!
