Welcome Ollie

Training Status Update: 2/2/22

Congratulations…. Ollie has been placed with a client. GO Team Ollie/Jeff. Ollie was fostered by Mike & Norma



Training Status Update: 1/16/22

Ollie has completed his training. He will continue to come in to maintain his skills until he’s entered into trial placement




Training Status Update: 12/19/21

Ollie has entered into the final phase of testing. He must meet an accuracy of at least 90% to complete his training.



Training Status Update: 12/5/21

Ollie is working on picking up his bringsel after identifying the target odor during scent training and after a fun day of training, Ollie relaxes on his bed.




Training Status Update: 12/3/21

Ollie is at 90% bringsel pairing. Once he hits 100%, he will have to prove to his trainer that he can not only continue to recognize the scent, but also that he understands to pick up and hold the bringsel without being prompted by her to do so.

Training Status Update: 11/17/21

Ollie has begun pairing the bringsel with the scent




Training Status Update: 10/27/21

 Ollie has increased his scent lineup to include 3 decoys. He will soon be placed on maintenance to work on his bringsel alert before he can move on to pairing the alert with the scent.



Training Status Update: 10/13/21

Ollie has met the training requirement to increase his scent lineup to include 2 decoys and is building his cue response, hold duration, and working towards his bringsel test goals

Ollie has been introduced to his first decoy!


Training Status Update: 9/1/21

Ollie is building confidence at the scent and ignoring distractions around him. check out the video




Training Status Update: 8/19/21

 Ollie spent a few days learning the scent, now he is working through his imprinting runs and getting as familiar with it as possible. We have just started to work on his nose placement on the jar and increasing the duration he is smelling it prior to being rewarded
