Stage 1 Introduction

Hello! I'm Cora. I am proud to have been selected to enter into the Retrieving Freedom training program.  My parents are from Snitker Goldens. During this stage of training I will be spending approximately 8 months with my new volunteer foster, Kathy. 

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.

This month I transitioned from my breeding fosters to my new puppy raiser. I have begun to work on the basics - walking on a leash, potty training, crate training, and learning my name.
