Finn has been working on reinforcing all of the obedience commands and tasks that he has learned so far, working on sound and touch sensitivity, maintaining a down stay on a bed, maintaining a sit and down stay while someone knocks at the door and rings a doorbell, and learning to stay in a stand position. Finn has also been working on "accepting a friendly stranger" which means practicing to sit politely while the handler stands close to and speaks to a stranger without the dog trying to sniff or get to the stranger and maintaining a sit while being pet by a stranger. He has been training in locations which have included Home Depot, Walmart, Petsmart, the park, and CAL Ranch.
Next week, Finn will be practicing the commands he has learned so far including walking next to a busy street, maintaining a stay for longer periods of time with distractions, leave it, being pet by strangers, recall, off leash heeling and sitting when the handler stops.
