Well, sorry for 2 posts in one day, but I just found out Lawrence has broken out of his phase 3 rut, and is in phase 5!!!!!! In honor of the squirt’s progress, here’s a video of him at his rowdiest…

“Phase #4
Progression of guidework training: more difficult sidewalks in busier sections of downtown areas
Training on more complex street crossings and curbs
Obstacle clearance initiated by the dogs; they begin to guide their mobility instructors through the campus obstacle course
Preliminary obedience testing and evaluation of the dogs’ reactions to head collars ”

“Phase #5
Preliminary guidework testing with the mobility instructor under blindfold
Complete veterinary history review
More challenging guidework training environments (pedestrian traffic, stairs, different flooring surfaces, etc.) “
