Echo has been an absolute dream since he touched down from Alberta on January 25th. He is calm yet inquisitive, and always ready
for a new challenge – he has yet to back down or shy away from anything new. I have taken every opportunity to expose him to as many different things as possible – from different people and places to different surfaces and animals. He has demonstrated calmness and focus when around people and other dogs and does very well with both individual walks and pack walks.
His skills are constantly building on each other as he learns quickly and is fueled by challenges…and treats! At home, he is relaxed, even during a knock on the door or fire alarm testing. He will be 6 months in a couple of weeks and I expect him to keep chasing excellence in his journey to being a service dog.
