⭐️Tune in for a Tuesday pup-date!! One week closer to this boy coming home to his human! 😁🐶❤️
Finn has been working on maintaining a down stay with people walking by, stay with distance, maneuvering to sit in front of the handler while the handler looks at items on a shelf or while at a checkout register, down stay while the handler is looking at things on a shelves in the same aisle, recall walking past distractions on the floor, leave it with treats in front of him and items dropping in front of him, continued practice with sound and touch sensitivity, sitting politely while being pet by strangers, and heeling next to the handler who carries plastic grocery bags. His training locations have included Barnes N Noble, Smith's grocery store, Sam's Club, Target and Home Goods.
Next week, Finn will be working on not bumping into shelves or interacting with merchandise, not interacting with other people unless instructed to do so, not licking or closely sniffing food or other items in store, appropriate behavior and sitting position on an elevator, ascending and descending stairs, and appropriate restaurant behavior.
