SPARTAN is a very soft guy who loves to be petted and get rump rubs from anyone who is willing to give them out. He is working hard on his retrieve foundations and is making progress on other service skills like hitting buttons to open automatic doors and turning lights on and off.

  • Skills being learned: Picking up items off the floor, ‘button’, ‘light’, ‘switch’.
  • Recent field trips: Parksville boardwalk, off leash trails, downtown Nanaimo, various other field trips.
  • Possible behavior challenges: Barking at unseen noises, low resilience, becomes less responsive when triggers begin to stack up.
  • Potential career path: Service
