Stage 1 Introduction

Hey, all! My name is Boomer. I am thrilled to have been selected to enter into the Retrieving Freedom training program. I came to Retrieving Freedom as a donation from Golden Rule Retrievers in Buffalo, Texas. During this stage of training I will be spending approximately 8 months with my new volunteer fosters, Marina and Steve. 

Throughout Stage 1, I will learn the basics obedience, public behavior, and a lot of socialization. I understand that it takes a very special dog to complete the program as there is a high standard to become a service dog. I am aware that I may be one of the dogs whose purpose is outside of service work so I will be updating my profile on a monthly basis for all that would like to follow my journey through the program.

I got to meet my new foster parents this month! Marina and Steve will be working with me for the next 8-10 months on obedience and public exposure. I love them already! They say I'm the cutest boy they know.
