He was perfect. I am super proud of my “Bubba” this weekend; he worked perfectly, tasked on point, and received so many compliments for how well behaved he was. So much of his public access work I have taken a lot slower this time around in comparison to my previous dogs, and it has definitely paid off greatly; is he perfect? No. He is still a young dog, after all. But slow is definitely faster for these guys; or as they say, “patience is a virtue”. #servicedogintraining#alertdog#tasktraining#muttsofinstagram#gideon#womensretreat2018#calvaryarvada
Fun fact, Krio's 'litter name' was fat man. He was literally the fattest puppy of the eight, and had little fat rolls at 5 weeks (moms milk was some good stuff apparently). He was a day over 4 months in these pictures 😭

Quincy did not want to take a picture this night, but I wanted something to commemorate the night that we passed the AKC puppy STAR test! We took the test last Friday and Quincy did great! Now to start training for the Canine Good Citizen test 💪🏻While service dogs do not have certification in the US, I think it’s a fun goal to get the AKC certifications as a way to mark our training progress 👏🏻 📸 @azservicepaws
Thanks @azservicepaws for the video of Quincy practicing picking up objects (in this case my receipt) at Denny’s a couple weeks ago. I really need to work on this task more! My favorite part of this video is when she gets a huge smile on her face when I tell her “good girl” she just loves to work 💪🏻
This boy has thrown me for a loop this week... Between an 8-day out-of-state trip, an emergency vet scare, and his INCREDIBLE behavior both in and out of public, despite not working all week leading up to then has been quite the pleasant surprise!
Saturday we made a fairly spontaneous trip up-North for personal commitments. However, what was intended to be a 5-day trip (planned for 7 days at most) turned into 8 days. Unfortunately I didn't have immediate care set up for Mischief so he got to go with us. 💚
While we were gone we made stops in Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and North Carolina. We saw family, a few friends near our stops, and did what we went to do. 😊
It was a fun experience, a lot of "car-camping," as I call it. I'd definitely consider this a successful adventure. 💙 (Also, we started working with the Rex Specs today, and he has done SO well!! Nothing overly exciting, but I'll get a video tomorrow if I can!) #servicedogs#dogs#servicedogintraining#rexspecs#germanshepherd#belgianmalinois#malinois#gsd#mutt#exposure#intraining#adventure#donedrivingforaminute
River graduated from Level 2 obedience today! 🎉 I am so proud of my boy! We’ve worked hard these last 6 weeks and made a lot of progress, especially with heeling, focusing through distractions, stays, and working through his biggest vice, wanting to play with all the other dogs 😛. River even got to rock his bow tie for one of his godmothers tonight to look all dapper for class 😍. Now that we’re done the levels, we may do level 2 again just for practice working around other dogs, we shall see 🙈🐾🐩
Service dog meet up today! Had a blast and got to work on new things😆 Stay tuned for the "new things" coming in a video
Follow our pawtners! 🐾
I have finally come to terms with the fact that my mom/pr will take advantage of EVERY photo opportunity, even if it means me sitting on this uncomfy bench🤦🏼♂️ This doesn’t mean I have to act happy about it😂🙄 #stubbornboy#wendelltres#servicedogintraining#cci
Chilling with the dogs. Had a gut feeling not to bring Heidi out today. We ended up having a lions foundation, Dog Guides dog pounce Benjamin’s face. I am glad I didn’t bring her. I think they were trying to use us as a training tool, but the man with the leash appeared to be low to mid functioning autism, and didn’t know how to handle his dog. I am waiting for a call back from Lions. We like to help, but ask us. Don’t sneak up on us and put your strange dog in another dogs face. Not all dogs will allow a dog to jump on their face.
I’ll update what happens when I am called back.
