- In Service Dogs
I’m so excited I can hardly contain myself.
I’m five days away from picking up our service dog — for my son, and my family. I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. There are three candidates to choose from, one of which Bear and I have already met (and adored). His name is Xan. He had a great interest in Bear when we were there. It was an example of that intangible bond between the dog and the possible handler.
For some inexplicable reason, I can’t shake the feeling that, Yeager, a black lab is going to be the winner. I’ll have to see who steals my heart when I get there, and who is performing the best. However, I’ve been told they are all exceptional.
I’ll be working hard to learn what I can from the trainers at Green Collar K9. I’m going to need to stay close to them to absorb what I can about the training process and ways to keep our new dog sharp. I really want to figure out how many dogs they could train per month for others. I’m already getting inquiries from people in need, and the waiting list has begun.
Our three possible candidates are:
Red Labrador, Nevada
Red Labrador, Xan
Black Labrador, Yeager
