Training Status Update: 5/29/22

Maddox is fast approaching pre-testing. He is a little work horse that just keeps on working.



Training Status Update: 5/9/22

Maddox is a rockstar in scent training room. We are adding distractions to his training, working with him on making independent decisions no matter what is going on around him.



Training Status Update: 4/21/22

Maddox is beginning to work on nose placement and duration at the scent jar.





Training Status Update: 3/28/22

Maddox is recognizing the target odor on his own. We are working on following the pattern, and building his confidence at the odor. Outside of the training room, he is learning the scent game while the odor is on a person, and learning how to offer a recognizable alert.
