A little girl and a quiet bark


Recommended Posts



She really is a great, once in a life time therapy dog.  She only needs me to drive the Airedale Limo.

You can create therapy dogs with the right experiences and the right dog.   Bostons are great at hospital visits because they fit on the bed.  Just don't carry them all over the place and make them neurotic.  Where do you live?800px-FEMA_-_10669_-_Photograph_by_Jocel

I live in Southern NJ.  Ruby can be a great lap dog, but she is a little.... rambunctious, though. :D
 

The Do you live near Wonder Dogs in West Berlin?  They are a good contact for all types of classes and can probably help you to get started training your crew.

 

Thearapy Dogs International is probably the certification body in your area.  They are located out of Flanders, NJ.

21 miles 40 minutes to Wonder Dogs.  Their website looks good - thanks!

Both flyball and agility look like fun.

Flyball is a hoot-- loud though because the dogs bark like crazy.  My dad owns a traiing academy in Delaware but he sometimes goes to south Jersey for practice and training.

Cool!  Small world!  Do you or he by any chance know Bonnie at Starr Dog Academy?  That is where Ruby went to puppy class.

I don't know them but my folks might.  They have been in dogs a long, long time.  I see on their website that they have CGC classes.  They can likely be a contact for TDI because CGC is the foundation for TDI.

Tillie was one of the great ones.  You can train about any dog to do some things.  The great ones seem to have the instinct to do what is needed on their own.

Badge passed 30 some years ago. I still miss her. Some dogs are special 

More than a few of the posters here are special as well.  Special can come in many forms.

Tillie was blessed to have a life filled with so much purpose and love.   I'm sure she received as much love as she gave.   Unfortunately, when we're lucky enough to have such special companions, it hurts even that much more to lose them.
