Phone Retrieval

After learning to retrieve a variety of objects, Katie and Olivia begin teaching Charlie to pick up certain objects by name. A service dog like Charlie can be taught to go to a specific location in the home to retrieve certain items like a telephone, medication, or car keys.  For the phone, there is a special strap attached to it that offers Charlie  a focal point and an easy way to pick it up and bring it to his veteran handler.
