my adventures becoming a therapy dog

... so here I am a complete beginner in the therapy business. My boss thought it would be a good idea to give something back to society... and she picked me as the oblation... by the way she always sacrifices me...

And today was my first day... we all (4 dog-human teams) met at the Pflegeheim Ennetsee pretty early in the morning (9am, pretty early for me).

First we had to do some obedience warm up... ohhh how I hate this.. look up Fraser, no Fraser, sit Fraser... and this all on wet and cold asphalt.. and no goodies at all -- they dont like if we get fed during work... shhhhhh

But then they (the trainers) brought wheelchairs, rolators, crutches.. hmm, looks like we going to have fun... and yes it was fun slaloming around rolators, jumping over crotches...

After almost 2hrs we moved in a the theory room and did some role playing, but dont ask me what exactly it was about I was tired, took a little nap... and hey guys they put socks on my paws... pink ones.. who wouldn't sleep with pink socks ...

So enough for now, in two weeks I will post more... hopefully my boss gets some beige socks... the elderly's couldn't stop laughing.. PINK SOCKS.. on a full grown male Amstaff.... How much more sissy can it get?

Good luck Fraser!

Hat's off to all you therapy dogs (and their people) out there. The visits make a world of difference to so many patients.

Aw, what a wonderful therapy dog. They do so much for the elderly or disabled kids, they bring so much joy. It's great you're doing this. And btw I love the socks
