QUIXLEY has been working on refining the skills he has learned so far and generalizing them to when his trainer is in a wheel chair. He is now confidently picking up the dumbbell for retrieve and we hope to see him continue to grow!

  • Skills being learned: ‘behind’, ‘open the door’, ‘button’, ‘tug’, ‘up’, ‘my lap’ and retrieve 
  • Recent field trips: Queen’s Park, Trout Lake, Granville Island, Lougheed Mall 
  • Possible behavior challenges: Environmental and animal distraction, impatience with repetition when learning a skill 
  • Potential career path: Service

Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Quixley!
