Service Dog Training
Task: Retrieving Phone Here: Service dog in training Zorn, 10 month old Red Fox Lab, practicing retrieving a phone given only the command of "phone". Zorn knows how to retrieve any object given the commands "take-it" and "give" but is now learning to identify and retrieve certain objects given only their name, such as "phone" seen here
Task: "Cover-Me" In this Video: Service dog in training Bobo, two year old lab donated by Iron Hill Retrievers. "Cover me" is primarily a psychiatric service dog task, that is used to provide a barrier between the client and the rest of the world, which provides safety and comfort, however mobility service dogs can also learn this command for the same reason.
