QUOKKA continues to spend lots of time working with Margaret. They have been visiting various local schools and Quokka has been practicing minding his manners with novel handlers in higher distraction areas. He is snuggly and sweet, which makes him super popular with all kinds of people. His favorite thing to do is hang out on the floor cuddling. We hope to complete his pre-placement testing very soon and we hope to be matching him with a client in the very near future!

  • Skills being learned: Maintaining basic obedience and public access manners, working with novel handlers.
  • Recent field trips: Various local schools, various field-trips with Margaret and his advanced sitters.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Occasionally scavenges for food on the floor.
  • Potential career path: AFD

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