Training Update-Veteran's Litter
The Veteran's Litter is busy at work at JBFCS. Ace, Bauer, Boone and Hanson have started the "Lion Tamer Game" with their student handlers. What is the "Lion Tamer Game" you may ask. ECAD Instructor/Trainer Lia Schwartz tells us :
It's when we have 4-6 dogs out at a time, all on jump on boxes. One student (the lion tamer) controls all the dogs at one time. So the first student has to get all the dogs to "sit". The second student has to get all the dogs to "down". The third student has to get all the dogs to "off" and "go in". Basically, all the dogs must be in position at the same time. If the student handlers can only get 5 of the 6 dogs into position and can't get the 6th, and then loses all of them, they have to start over.
