During Week 3, your focus was on learning about the theory behind distraction proofing and changing canine behavior. Now that you've studied the concepts, it's time to put them to work in the week 4 Service Dog Challenge: "Focus, Fido!"
If you and your Service Dog participated in Week Two of the 2014 Service Dog Challenge, you should have a much clearer understanding of exactly what your canine partner knows and how well she knows it. During Week Three, the focus shifts from your dog to you. Gear up for a fun week of learning and as always, thanks for joining us for the 2014 SD Challenge!
Last week, we introduced the 2014 Service Dog Challenge. We had you identify some areas you and your canine partner could both improve in and write them down for safe keeping. This week, it's time to actually get the ball rolling! Welcome to Week Two of the 2014 Service Dog Challenge, and we're glad you've decided to join us.
New Year's resolutions are a time-honored tradition but we're all familiar with how difficult it is to keep up with them. If you're like many Service Dog and working K-9 handlers, you may have a couple dog-related items on your list, like "train more" or "socialize" or "learn new things." In order to help you and your Service Dog learning, growing and bonding all year long, we're proud to announce the 2014 Service Dog Challenge!
