Training begins for the Cambodian handlers! They worked on saying commands such as “Sit,” walking the dogs on leash in a heel position and even worked the dogs on small sit exercises! A sit exercise is a training exercise in which the dogs are told to sit at scats placed out for them to locate. This trains the dogs to sit when doing field work, allowing the handler to recognize when a sample is detected. It is also a great way for Vong and Oudom to earn the dog’s trust and love because they get to play ball! It was great fun for all involved and the boys had good enthusiasm throughout the day.
