WOODSTOCK has begun to practice some service skills and retrieve in public. It can be tricky to generalize at first, but he is keen to figure it out and keeps making strides forward. He is very enthusiastic to try “button” in public and does a great job at hitting elevator buttons once he warms up his focus and aim. When working on skills and retrieve on site, he loves tug play as a reward!
