We got the phase report today and Casey is in phase 1. Now Casey is really learning how to be a guide dog. In this phase they cover:

  • Food Reward and Clicker Techniques
  • Obedience Responses & Teaching focus around distractions
  • Formal Obedience
  • Food Refusal Protocol
  • Socialization
  • Body Handling Acceptance
  • Introduction to the Harness
  • Treadmill Training
  • Pattern Training
  • Up Curb Exercise #1
  • Developing Physical Agility
  • Dog Agility Walk
  • Back Up Chute
  • Obstacle Course

I’m so excited that Casey is getting to learn all these things. I can’t wait to see the next phase report.
