PAISLEY II has been practicing her default ‘leave its’ and has been getting better and better at it. She does best when she knows that it is a set up, but she is catching on pretty quick! She continues to enjoy working with interrupters and getting one on one time with her handler. Paisley has occasionally barked in outdoor public spaces, so we are exploring what this means as she selects her path.
- Skills being learned: Practice of obedience and default behaviors
- Recent field trips: 6th and 6th New Westminster, Lougheed Mall and various others
- Possible behavior challenges: Occasional and unpredictable barking in public, in and out of cape
- Advanced training location: Burnaby
- Potential career path: Assistance Dog
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Paisley!
