MUDGE is loving having an extra big breakfast and dinner and she is back to her normal weight. We have resolved her car travel hesitation and she is happily jumping into the van for field trips. Mudge is always an enthusiastic training partner and thrives on learning new skills. She is learning to maintain contact when her handler is in wheelchair for both ‘foot’ and ‘my lap.’
- Skills being learned: ‘Hold’ portion of retrieve, ‘light’, ‘switch’, ‘foot’, ‘my lap’, manual wheelchair manners.
- Recent field trips: Various local schools, Metrotown Mall, Ikea, Canadian Tire.
- Possible behavior challenges: Counter surfing, dog distraction.
- Potential career path: Service or PTSD
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Mudge!
