Stage 1 Introduction

Hi, my name is Splash. I am proud to have been selected to enter into the Retrieving Freedom training program.  I am from Green Hills Goldens in Chillicothe, Missouri. During this stage of training I will be spending approximately 8 months with my new volunteer foster, Tammy.

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.

Say hello to my new foster, Tammy! Together we are going to tackle potty training, crate training, and learning my name this month. I'll also learn to walk on a leash and play appropriately with toys. I'm excited to begin this journey!
