Dior was off to NYC with his home handler for the weekend and did very well on the train ride into the city, he was not overly distracted by the hustle and bussle of the city and behaved very well in the apartment. Dior went for a 7 mile jog in Central park and loved it. Dior had no reaction to the horses, other dogs or much else in the park. What a fun weekend.
Dior took a trip to the Danbury mall and was very well behaved throughout the trip. Lunch in Ruby tuesdays had Dior quietly laying under the table and showing no intrest in food. Dior helped in the jean shopping and carried a bag of three jeans up to the counter without dropping them. Dior threw away a plastic bad with ease (up, reach, drop it). The only hiccup in an almost perfect outing was barking at a store front that was displaying wigs in the window ( I think I would have barked too) and was easily redirected.

Lots of updates for the past two weeks on the progress of our service dogs in training!
Bauer 's home handler report that he is "Great "! He will self correct himself when getting off point, he gets along really well the other pet in the house a "puggle". He is very good when meeting new people and new dogs , he did find the toilet bowl and mistook it for a giant water bowl, he will be working on correcting that!
Boone is doing much better about sleeping through the night without crying which is a huge improvement for him. He has been much better about grabbing for things and is very good about meeting new people and greeting them properly.
Ace's home handler's report that he is doing very well in the home. Ace does not react to the handlers cat and when charged by an off leash dog had no reaction. He rode an elevator with no issues and accepted corrections without issue!
