Grayson continues to be the wolf that responds to external influences such as backhoe work around the site (yes, the new fiber optic line is being dug this week.. maybe a return of the retired camera broadcast next week?).  We did have  break through this week.  For years, Grizzer has been bark-howling at the vets when they come on site for medical checks. As you can imagine, this past month has had a lot of visits to help Luna (and now Aidan), to heal from the various medical issues.  Grayson, hearing Grizzer bark howl, would join in and even started a few bark howling sessions at the vet before Grizzer even figured out they were on site.  This is an obvious concern because bark-howling is a warning sign to other pack members and we certainly didn’t want a vet visit to be a negative thing.  On Tuesday nights vet check with Aidan, Grizzer actually approached the vet, sniffed and licked her hand and never let out a single howl.  Fortunately, Grayson didn’t either and Aidan had a good check, while the respective packs remained calm.  Positive and negative conditioning are issues we deal with on a daily basis.  To learn more about conditioning, Join us for Wednesday, August 14th at 7 pm Central Time for the Wolf Care, Positive Conditioning Webinar – we will share news on Luna and Aidan’s medical condition an have a special guest join us for some tips on positive conditioning for our 2020 pups.  Follow this link to register.   https://wolf.org/programs/webinars
