VADER is spending some time with advanced training volunteer Val and is enjoying going on all kinds of field trips and adventures. Vader continues to work on PTSD Service skills and is being assessed for potential careers as either a PTSD or mobility service dog. We hope to get Vader matched with a client soon!
- Skills being learned: Anxiety interruption, maintaining service skills, basic obedience and public access manners.
- Recent field trips: Various outings with his advanced sitter.
- Possible behavior challenges: Struggles to transfer skills to new handlers.
- Potential career path: PTSD or Service
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Vader!
