Way to go, Finn!
Have you been wondering what Finn’s been up to recently? Wait no longer, the pupdate is here!
Finn has been practicing recall in a high distraction environments, leave it with items dropped in front of him, walking next to an electric wheel chair, sound sensitivity, maintaining a down stay for longer periods of time on a dog bed as a boundary and off leash heeling. Training locations this week have included Costco, Sam's Club, Panda Express, Smith's grocery store, Walmart and Sears.
Next week, Finn will continue to practice maintaining a down stay with people walking by, stay with distance, down stay while the handler is looking at things on a shelf, recall walking past distractions on the floor, leave it with treats and items dropping in front of him, and continued practice with sound sensitivity.
