Kinnick II

Posted on: in [ Service Dogs in Training ]

Hello, my name is Kinnick. I am proud to have been selected to enter into the Retrieving Freedom training program. My parents are Gracie (Cheryl and Dick I.) and Wally (Ridgeview Labradors). During this stage of training I will be spending approximately 8 months with my new volunteer foster, Ashley. Throughout stage 1 training, I will learn the basics of citizenship, public behavior, and basic obedience. I understand that it takes a very special dog to complete the program as there is a high standard to become an official 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.


November 2019 Update

We have been busy from day one working on training and going out into public to socialize. I attend the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) with my foster mom. So far I have been working on learning my name and "sit". My mom says I am the smartest boy in the world!
