Stage 1 Introduction

Hi there, I'm Ellie! I am proud to have been selected to enter into the Retrieving Freedom training program.  I am from Golden Dream Kennels. During this stage of training I will be spending approximately 8 months with my new volunteer foster, Angie.

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 officially began training to hopefully become a service dog someday! I was raised from birth at Golden Dreams Kennel by a wonderful woman named Angie. Lucky for us, Angie will now be my volunteer puppy raiser for the next 8 months! First we will work on learning my name, walking on a leash, and potty + crate training!
