Now that Charlie retrieves and holds a dumbbell well, we've begun to work with him picking up everyday objects that his veteran may need to him retrieve.
Charlie's ability to pick object up for his handler will increase their independence and hopefully lessen any pain they may have associated with leaning, bending or reaching for items they may have dropped.
Olivia and Katie work with lots of objects in different locations to help Charlie gain confidence in being able to pick up anything he might be asked to. Charlie is shaping up to be a great service dog! Be sure to check back for more Charlie training pupdates!
