Hey Doodle Lovers! It's Remington Bear here!
Today I'm going to tell you about a new challenge I'm hoping to take on this summer!
Ever since I was a small pup...
Yep that's me...
Mom has wanted to get me certified as a therapy dog.
I don't know much about this job, but if it involves working with my Mom I'm all for it!
Mom says to be a therapy dog I have to be at least one year old... uuuuhhhhhh last I checked I'm four!!!
But, Mom said she wanted to wait a while to do something like this because I needed time to mature and calm down a little bit.
We've been looking into some training classes for me so I can pass my evaluation with flying colors! Don't get me wrong... I have the basic doggie stuff down, but what I need to work on is doing those things with distractions all around me like large groups of people, other doggies, wheelchairs, food, walkers, kids, etc. That's gonna be tough!
Mom found a 18 week training program that she's hoping we can do this summer... it basically takes me through 3 levels of training and by the time I'm finished I would graduate with my Canine Good Citizen degree! That is pretty much the same thing as having a Masters degree in the human world!
I'm pretty excited! Do you think I'll be a good candidate for this job!? I sure hope so... I don't wanna let Mom down! I'll keep everyone posted!
Time to sign off... WIGGLES!
