CONGRATULATIONS TO LINDA AND HER NOW SERVICE DOG, SNOOKIE!!!!! From trainer, Cherry:
Huge congratulations to Linda, who with her now Service Dog, Chinook (they lovingly call Snookie) passed their Public Access Test today!
This awesome little dog performed perfectly in all areas; just look at how he focuses on his mother’s face when off leash and still walking right beside her. In the restaurant, Snookie did wonderfully, and was happy just to doze off under the table. He waited patiently for Linda’s command to exit his kennel in the car, and stayed in a perfect heel around the store. His “sits”, “downs”, and “stays” were excellent, and I was very proud to announce they had passed with flying colors!
Snookie has three specialized tasks: “cover”, “watch me”, and “check behind”. Linda likes Snookie to look behind her when they are walking which makes her feel safe and more secure.
Linda’s anxiety is so much better since shes been training lil Snookie, and told me that having a Service Dog has been invaluable to her. I am so pleased for her, and her devotion to training has truly paid off!
