GATSBY has made many friends here on the island! He has such an endearing personality, and everyone here loves having him around. He has been hard at work learning many things but his favorite thing to do is settle down in the evening with Rob’s family for a snuggle on the floor. When he is not training with Rob or one of Rob’s advanced training volunteers, Gatsby loves to have a good romp in the yard or at the off-leash dog park with training buddies Vimy, Dax and Daegan.
