Paddy is currently with his adult raiser. He will continue to work hard on generalizing his cues and house manners in a new environment, with a new handler. This stage of training is to prepare them for University.

Training Updates

Paddy is a sweet boy that enjoys going for walks and playing catch in the backyard with his kong. He has very good house manners and responds quickly to commands while inside. He gets compliments from onlookers everywhere we go! We are working on animal distractions while walking and he is improving with his name recall. An absolute joy to be around, this handsome boy is well on his way to being a wonderful service dog!

Paddy continues to impress me every day with how smart and attentive he is. His recall during distractions has significantly improved and he has been working very hard to remain calm when new people come to the door. Recently, Paddy has gotten lots of exposure to smaller children and he is so gentle around them. Getting to take Paddy out in public has been great so far! Paddy has tried lots of new places. He’s confident and very aware of his handler. He still gets many positive comments for his behaviour and his good looks of course!

Paddy has been accepted to NSD University! He will be starting training on November 22nd.
