YAHTZEE is new to advanced training and is settling in nicely. He is a very sweet boy who easily transfers to different handlers. He has been focusing on using his paws for targeting work for ‘push’ and ‘button’ cues. He has a nice start on retrieve with firm grabs of a dumbbell and is working on strengthening his hold to hopefully add duration in the coming months. He loves working on skills and is excited to see what he can do!
- Skills being learned: ‘Button’, ‘push’, ‘light’, ‘open the door’, retrieve foundations.
- Recent field trips: Canada Games Pool, 8 Rinks, various training field trips.
- Possible behavior challenges: Alert barking at home.
- Potential career path: Service, PTSD or AFD
Thank you again for all your support of Advanced Dog Yahtzee!
