SWELL is moving smoothly into fall and is enthusiastically learning more and more skills and having lots of field trip time. Swell’s sweet steady nature has him excelling at being a polite and calming presence when greeting people while his party time silly side has him loving trick training like ‘twirl’, ‘roll over’, and ‘Wipe Out’! We hope to see Swell completing his pre-placement testing in the near future and look forward to sharing the next steps of his journey!

  • Skills being learned: ‘Visit’, ‘hug’, body targeting, polite greetings
  • Recent field trips: Central Memorial High School, Macleod Trail Animal Hospital, Marlborough Mall, off leash areas
  • Possible behavior challenges: Can be worried about strange sounds, ramps up at the off-leash area
  • Advanced training location: Calgary
  • Potential career path: Assistance Dog

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