Default Quick brag on my boy :)

My boy Pentti passed his Therapy Dogs International test last night! This was a HUGE accomplishment for him, as he has had a rough go at things in his short life thus far (taken to a shelter when he was a year old by his "family" because he was "untrainable," luckily reunited with his breeder then shown to his CH some points for his GCH before an attack by another dog outside of the ring left him scared of that environment and people touching his face/checking his bite, and then he came to me as a resource guarder with the touching issues). But he's obviously here to stay with me, and he's come to like all people loving on him alllll over. The vet's office is one of his favorite places to visit hahaha. He's such a good dog, and wonderful breed ambassador.

Here's a pic with the ribbon our club gave us. We still have to get all of the paperwork filled/sent out before he is "official."

I'm hoping to get him involved with children's hospitals in the area as well as some child advocacy groups. I think that he would like that kind of work best

Thanks meepitsmeagan for the siggy!

Congratulations! I had so much fun doing therapy visits to a special needs class with our last dog.

OT- you're a member of Princeton Dog Training Club? Are you going to be at the trial in January? I've had it in the back of my head to enter for awhile. We went a couple of years ago, and really enjoyed it. Even with the elbow to elbow crowd and NQing.

Wonderful! For both of you
