Stage 1 Introduction

Hi! My name is Valentine, and I go by "Valley." I am proud to have been selected to enter into the Retrieving Freedom training program.  My parents are "Annie" who is originally from Kerrybrook Labradors and is now fostered by the Card family, and "Stone" of Oasis Labradors. During this stage of training I will be spending approximately 8 months with my new volunteer fosters, Jane and Michelle.

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 wonderful breeding home in Texas to my new puppy foster home in Missouri! I am excited to learn alongside Jane and Michelle. First, I will be working on potty training, crate training, walking on a leash, and learning my name!
