NSD ReMax

ReMax is currently with his adult raiser. He has started College and goes to NSD for training 2 days a week. When not at NSD, he learns how to settle, cuddle and continue to be a welcomed member of the community. This training will help prepare him to be matched with his client.

All of the training and care provided to each dog would not be possible without the support of generous volunteers and donors.

Updates

ReMax is 9 months old already and has settled in nicely with his Puppy Raiser family. He is currently at the Grade School level of his training where he is attending weekly puppy classes and learning new skills at home such as, staying home alone outside of his crate and adding mild distractions to his day (such as the vacuum, other animals, throwing toys, etc.). In a few months, he will begin high school and be one step closer to becoming a Service Dog!

Remax has the most wonderful personality. He is confident, calm, loving, and always wanting to learn. He absolutely loves going out to work in vest and appreciates when his hard work is acknowledged. Right now we are working on dog distractions and getting used to kids as they are both very exciting for this guy! We are also working on some fun tricks/skills such as ‘turn around’, ‘spin’, and ‘stand’. In the last few weeks, Remax went on his first camping trip and accompanied his raiser to the vaccine clinic, and it couldn’t have gone better. It’s been such an amazing experience so far to watch this boy grow into such a lovely, well-rounded pup.

ReMax is one very special guy. He is excellent in vest and loves to accompany me everywhere he can. We have been attending in-person lectures at the university together, and Remax settles very well for every class. Right now, we are continuing to work through our dog distractions, and we are learning commands such as “stand”, “step-up”, and “back up”. I’m so proud of this sweet guy’s progress so far.

We are pleased to welcome ReMax to our breeding program!

We were so excited to welcome Remax into our home in November as his adult raisers/breeder caretakers. We had a great holiday season with him and he’s loving playing in all of the snow recently. We are currently working on improving his loose leash walking with distractions around, such as other dogs. We are also working on his door manners to help keep him safe when someone comes to the door. He loves to learn and is one smart pup!

ReMax has been accepted into NSD University as part of our 2022 Fall class!

NSD Remax is getting ready to start University this June. He has been working on perfecting some of his skills like loose leash walking and staying on his mat when someone comes to the door. He has been swimming in the pool a few times and has been loving that!

ReMax will be joining Companion College to start training as a Skilled Companion Dog!

NSD Remax has settled well into Companion College this past month. Remax loves to learn and is always eager to please his humans. He has proven himself to be an A+ cuddler and has been on his best behaviour when working around kids in various scenarios. He is working hard on nice loose leash walking and settling around the other dogs.
