WINNIE continues to work on refining her service skills and enjoys ‘button’ most of all. She is working on getting and maintaining a solid grip on various textures and items for a duration carry. Winnie has also been working on leash and collar pressure as feedback for loose leash walking. Ashley hopes that the grip and loose leash work will enable Winnie to make her duration retrieve solid so that she can continue with mobility service work.

  • Skills being learned: Practice of all skill so far.
  • Recent field trips: Currently Not Applicable Due to COVID-19
  • Possible behavior challenges: Not consistently maintaining loose leash zone, vocalizing when excited/frustrated/activated.
  • Advanced training location: Burnaby
  • Potential career path: Assistance Dog

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