Latest training project with service dog trainee is helping me get up from a fall.
Like the task of finding & bringing my husband, I think Hero has just about “finished” this task for his training. These two tasks are his primary job description. But at 17 months old, he is still far too distractable and impetuous to call him a finished service dog; definitely still a trainee. I understand labradoodles are exceptional partnership-thinkers, but you cannot expect this breed to “finish” as a service dog until after two years old.
“Front” is task of positioning (because can be used for other tasks as well). Then “Brace” is task execution. This is one of Hero’s favorite tasks because i start within reach for him to cuddle me, and because it is quickly done. Plus, i think he feels macho when he does it, LOL.
