Ray the Service Dog Demonstrates How to Ride an Escalator
Ray the Service Dog is back for another How-To Animal Training Video. This time, he demonstrates how to ride an escalator. Christopher “Killatia” Wyche recorded this How-To Dog Training Video for me on my iPhone on June 7, 2014 prior to our going to E3 Expo. Riding an escalator is perhaps the most dangerous activity you can do with your Service Dog. Therefore, I suggest you always use the elevator if given the option. Ray and I have practiced this for years now, so it’s second nature to him. As i mentioned in the video, it is crucial that you keep your dog in the center of the escalator so that his paws do not get caught in the sides. Also, exiting the escalator is the trickest part. Do not let your service dog jump off the escalator or hesitate. Simply walk off naturally. Always keep an eye on your dog’s paws so that they do not get caught as you exit. Trimming your dogs nails is highly recommended.
