TONY’S training is looking good. He is a gentleman and is such a lovely and sweet guy to hang with. He always strives to please his person and can be a bit worried about making mistakes and trying new things, so we are working on confidence building exercise. His favorite thing to do is to rest his chin on Lisa’s lap (or arm or any other body part available) so she can pet him. Tony has such a nice temperament and Lisa sees a lot of potential for his future as a potential PADS assistance dog.
