Dog In Training

Got the news today: Felix did much better on his submission today and passed his retest.

That means I'm officially a Dog in Training! This is the time when PAWS staff decide what job I might be good for. The selection criteria is very high. Not all pups will make the program. In the next few months I am in Phase 1&2 training.
In Phase 1- I work on improving upon the obedience training I already started. The degree of difficulty and more distractions are added to make sure my behavior is solid.
In phase 2 -I will learn retrieving and door opening skills. Most of the advanced skills I learn will be based on these 2 tasks.

Wish me luck on this new adventure.

Note from my teachers:

Felix did well on his temperament test. He did struggle with the submission portion but we will keep working with him on that and hopefully that will improve once he’s settled in. We will retest him in a week. I will keep you posted.
