Implementing a printAnimals method

I am trying to implement a printAnimals() method that prints the ArrayList for dogs or prints the ArrayList for monkeys, or prints all animals whose training status is “in service” and whose is Not reserved, depending on the input you enter in the menu. I am trying to correctly write a for loop for both ArrayList that contains if statements, so it will print whatever item in the ArrayList meets the conditions, which are that their trainingStatus equals “in service” and that reserved = false.

I currently have an error under printAnimals() method that says “The method dogList(int) is undefined for type Driver” and another error message that says “The method monkeyList(int) is undefined for type Driver”. Do you know how to correctly type a for loop that iterates through an ArrayList and has if statements? Here is the code I have so far:

import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.Scanner;

public class Driver {
private static ArrayList<Dog> dogList = new ArrayList<Dog>();
private static ArrayList<Monkey> monkeyList = new ArrayList<Monkey>();
// Instance variables (if needed)

public static void main(String[] args) {


    initializeDogList();
    initializeMonkeyList();

    // Creates a scanner class object
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    char option;
    // Displays the menu in loop until the user enters the exit option
    do
    {
        displayMenu();
        option=input.next().charAt(0);
        // If user input is 1, intakeNewDog method is called
        if(option=='1') {
            
            intakeNewDog(input);
        }
        // If the option is 2, the intakeNewMonkey method is called
        else if(option=='2') {
            
            intakeNewMonkey(input);
        }
        // If the option is 3, the reserveAnimal method is called
        else if(option=='3') {
        
            reserveAnimal(input);
        }
        // If the option is 4, the printAnimals method is called to print dog list
        else if(option=='4') {
            
            printAnimals(option);
        }
        // If the option is 5, the printAnimals method is called to print monkey list
        else if(option=='5') {
            
            printAnimals(option);
        }
        // If the option is 6, the printAnimals method is called to print all available 
        animals
        else if(option=='6') {
            
            printAnimals(option);
        }
        // If the option is q, exit message prints and application stops running
        else if(option=='q') {
            
            System.out.print("You have exited the application.");
            break;
        }
        else {
            System.out.print("You have entered an invalid input.");
        }
     }while (option != 'q');


}

// This method prints the menu options
public static void displayMenu() {
    System.out.println("nn");
    System.out.println("ttttRescue Animal System Menu");
    System.out.println("[1] Intake a new dog");
    System.out.println("[2] Intake a new monkey");

    System.out.println("[4] Print a list of all dogs");

    System.out.println("[q] Quit application");
    System.out.println();
    System.out.println("Enter a menu selection");
}

Answer

Looks for me an error here:

if (dogList(i).getTrainingStatus.equals("in service") && 
    dogList(i).getReserved()==false) {

This should be:

if (dogList.get(i).getTrainingStatus.equals("in service") && 
        dogList.get(i).getReserved()==false) {

Try it and let me know if that is now working.
