During our shopping adventures at several stores, we continue practicing our commands.
One command we practice is down stay come. It is a recall when I walk several feet/meters away from her, give the command ‘ COME ‘. Which she does well. Sometimes I give her a treat and other times not. Like to surprise her.
Another command is ‘ GET LEASH/LEAD ‘. As I am loading the shopping cart with the bags and than swipe the credit card. Lizzy is in the down stay position.
Once we are ready I issue the command. Lizzy gets her Leash/Lead and positions it in my hand. As I am attaching it to her collar customers are looking with smiles on their faces. One gentleman gives us the thumbs up.
Great job Lizzy.
A service dog, [ working dogs such as military, guide, hearing, therapy ] their minds are ‘ ON ‘ position.
It is important to provide down time for them. To rest from the stresses of working. Their minds and bodies get emotionally and physically drained.
Gave Lizzy a special treat when we came home.
Now we are resting. After shopping and the excessive heat. We need it. Lizzy earned it.
