1st Day - Team Training

Update from first day of team training!

Everything here is so amazing! Aside from that on to a bit about the dogs. I cannot tell you dog names or post pictures until after graduation. Today and tomorrow there are six of us rotating through ten dogs. I worked with four days today, all Lab and Golden Retriever crosses, two yellow females, black male and black female.

Yes I have my favorite but I cannot get attached. More dogs tomorrow not sure if we will be rotate the same ten dogs or if they will bring in a entire different group.

Today is the Day!!!!

Well today is the day I have have been waiting for since August of 2009! We are leaving for Santa Rosa in a few hours, to begin training with my service dog! EKKK.

Tomorrow the training officially starts and I will work with different dogs Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday I will find out which dog will most likely be mine I will work with him or her for the rest of the training. If all goes well I will graduate and come home with my new best furry buddy in just two weeks!

Guess what it is official I received my conformation and dorm room assignment yesterday,  So much to do in so little time to get ready for the start of this new life long adventure. We leave Jan 30th and training starts the 31st.  Be sure to check back as I will try to update daily while we are attending team training!
