Meet Iroko and his new partner Lindsey. Iroko is Lindsey’s 2nd PADS Dog, after the amazing Silky retired, and he’s confidently navigating the world with his new partner.

Iroko was whelped in the Lower Mainland by the Madeo Family and was then raised by Cathy and Shawn. During Puppy-Raising, Iroko earned a reputation for being eager to learn and being ready for anything, this attitude followed him to Advanced Training in Calgary where he got his own hashtag: #Irokoenthusiasm. Cathy notes “His big personality made him welcome everywhere he met. Shawn and I loved raising this big guy and I am thrilled that he is working with such a wonderful client.”  Once in Advanced Training, Iroko worked with his Advanced Sitters, Stephanie & Corey, alongside his trainer to capitalize on this enthusiasm to help him build his skills to become the best partner possible for Lindsey!

We are very excited to see this partnership bound over the course of their time together, and very grateful to everyone on #TeamIroko for their time and dedication getting this sweet boy to where he is today.
