Cuteness from today.
Christmas 2013 at 10 months of age, Blossom was placed into a loving home with 3 children to continue her training. Her training will continue with the mother attending weekly training sessions with her service dog trainer. Blossom and UB will meet each other weekly to train as well as to romp and just be dogs.
Our goal will be at 1 yr to pass her CGC test (Canine Good Citizen ) and begin to do AAT (Animal Assisted Therapy) in her home/ and volunteer in her community . Blossom will continue to learn alerting skills to assist her new mother. Our goal is to be able to mature and complete training and pass her skills test and Public Access Test at 2 years of age to become a Certified Medical Alert Service Dog.
UB, a certified service dog, is Blossoms mentor . They lived and trained together daily for 5 months. Having a stable balanced mentor helps a service dog in training as the older dog models appropriate behavior and skills to go in public and follow Assistance Dogs International guidelines. UB is a 7 years old Multi Generational Australian Labradoodle and a Certified Medical Alert Service Dog with Hawaii Fido Service Dogs a 501(c) 3 non profit accredited with Assistance Dogs International since 2007.

He also volunteers weekly with Equest Hooves for Heroes, a Therapeutic Horseback Riding Center with Wounded Warriors/Veterans who have served our USA.
