VALOUR has been working on maintaining and further refining all the skills she has learned so far in advanced training. She has also been practicing and sharpening her basic obedience cues and default behaviors such as ‘leave it’. Valour has been working on her accuracy and generalization of the ‘button’ cue. She has gotten much better at her aim at the crosswalk buttons near PADS campus.

  • Skills being learned: ‘Switch’, ‘button’, practice of all learned skills.
  • Recent field trips: Currently Not Applicable Due to COVID-19
  • Possible behavior challenges: Occasional separation anxiety and barrier frustration.
  • Advanced training location: Burnaby
  • Potential career path: Assistance Dog

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