Default Extras

I have a Golden Retriever in my possession. She's pretty much adorable. I really wish I could keep her, but she's being assessed on Monday as a potential Autism Assist Dog.

She's never lived in a house before but by golly is she a stable, go with the flow dog. Just some minor insecurities when we walked in the door... she's now exploring the whole place and checking in on her own.

Stable dogs... what a concept!

If she doesn't make it you should pass her on to me

Yup.

Lol well I'm sure she's adorable.. I have had a crush on goldens forever.
The shedding is what always kills me in the end.

She's naked as a jaybird right now, so pretty much my ideal amount of hair!

I don't have my good camera with me but I'll get pictures later.

She's coming to the autocross tomorrow so we'll see how she handles that as well.

This is MY epitome of stable, sound, awesome dog. I texted Lauren while we were out for a hike with Buzz because I was in awe.

First, she's only been worked with by a force trainer. She failed out of gundog school because she couldn't take the pressure. Since then she hasn't really been worked at all (probably a year or more). I packed kibbles and my trusty clicker and we headed out for a hike.

I'm seriously amazed. She was super responsive after just a couple minutes on the trail, she was offering eye contact by the middle of the hike, and every time but one when I clicked she was at my hand. I realized I'd fed her from my right hand the whole hike so after I put Buzz in the car we wandered around the parking lot with her on my left side and I reinforced with my left hand. After just one attempt to get to my right hand after the click, she realized that whatever hand is presented has the food!

I really hope she impresses them as much as she's impressed me. Great in a crate, completely no reactive to other dogs, and has taken all these huge new things in stride without a blink.

I'll post a picture or two if I can get them off my phone.
