Archer Update # 3

Posted

Archer continues his training.

Photo is of Archer playing with his toys.

Archer had a friend visit him for a week. Cedar, another Guide Dog in training, is a Labrador aged 22 months and has joined Archer for training and socialization.

Cedar and Archer got to spend some time together at Surrey Bend Park enjoying Nature. 

As far as Archer's training is going he is responding to his whistle recall and response tasks and continues to show improvement on his walks with regards to pace, ignoring items and other dogs and negotiating obstacles. On the downside he has been marking a lot and that is not something encouraged in a Guide Dog.

Archer is going through a stage that is apparently common in Retrievers where he is not showing much interest in his food. It looks like Cedar's visit is likely to help change that as in typical Labrador fashion he enjoys his food and will go after Archer's if Archer isn't interested.

Archer is happy and healthy and continuing his training.
