SD - I can't say enough good things about what you and Spock have done this past year ! How rewarding this has to be - Spock is a true ambassador for the Doberman world and all his friends here on Dober Talk !

Great Job Team Spock !

Spock Update - Will Be Trying Hospice Visits over Summer

Since school is out for summer, Spock & I are getting our toes/paws wet into Hospice Visits. Several of our local Delta Pet Partners SA affiliate members are doing this work now. I went to Hospice office today with Spock to meet about 40 employees of the Hospice service organization. I met the Volunteer Coordinator (VC) at our annual Pet Partners meeting/workshop this last Saturday.

I gave Spock a chamois bath this morning and did his nails, just like we do during school year for the Read With Me visits. We dressed out in our vest/Pet partner's shirt uniforms and headed to the office. When I said we're "going to school", Spock jumped up and ran to the garage door with his nub just a waggin'! He has been moping around the house since being on summer vacations from his school visits.

During today's visit, Spock was calm, but interested and a bit reserved as we went from office to office at the hospice organization. He was himself when getting praise, scratches and attention from the (40) some, mostly female, employees. We even went into the lunchroom where he sniffed out something in a casserole tray under the microwave.

Spock laid down in the conference room after visiting everyone in the office, while Sam & I went over details of the organization and visits. Only one woman was afraid to pet him, but later came into the training room to see him where another group of employees was petting him.

This month, we'll do a shadow visit to a hospice facility along with another PP therapy dog team, similar to our first elementary school visit training. Then hopefully, shortly thereafter, Spock and I will make our first hospice visit. We will gradually phase these into our school visits when school resumes in late Aug.

I am currently also training our female Dobe, Eva, for the Pet Partner's Team Eval in August, as well. She has done well in initial training. Eva has had Basic Obedience, but not the CGC, like Spock.

Just got a pic of Spock today taken at the hospice office conference room, decked out in his Pet Partner's vest and harness.

FYI- My Purple Visit Bag has everything but the kitchen sink in it: hand sanitizer, napkins, treats, water bowl, trash bags, water bottle, deodorizer spray, paper towels, Windex, poop bags, first aid stuff, extra ID's, etc., etc.

Eva Passed Her Pet Partners Therapy Dog Eval!

This last Saturday, our Dobergal Eva (a.k.a. "Ms. Stubborn") shot down all the negative predictions and passed her Pet Partners Therapy Dog team evaluation!


Eva's New Pet Partners Therapy Team Badge Pic






Eva's New Therapy Team Album Page Pic





Ms. Eva is a much different personality from Mr. Spock. She is stubborn at times and loves her routines and not one to change quickly. However, she has a very loving temperament and craves human affection, like Spock. Also, when I practiced in past for Therapy Team Evals and visits with Spock, Eva would shadow him and wanted to participate also ("go to school").

During training over last month, I have been getting her up to speed slowly and in measured amounts. Due to blasting summer heat and her stubbornness, Eva did not like long training sessions. Occasionally, Eva would just shut down when she was fatigued. This is what I was most concerned about at the evaluation last Saturday, but it thankfully didn't happen.

The Neutral Dog and dropped toy portion of the Eval was no problem for Eva. She normally ignores large dogs and occasionally will try to play with small dogs. (another dog tested same day failed on the neutral dog test) Also, she is not the toy fanatico like Spock is... Luckily for us, throwing down of a high value treat was not part of the exam!

Eva was good with the noise distraction (dropping pan on floor behind her while walking) as I had been practicing that a lot in training. Eva's forte was letting the evaluator and volunteer exam, poke, prod and pet her en masse, as Spock, she LUUVVVVES human attention and being pampered! I plan to get her into the Read With Me (RWM) visits at the same school as Spock visits weekly.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Spock TD Update- We are now trying to get approval for Spock to visit our local city Senior's Center, with hundreds of potential Dobe admirers present daily! I declined Spock's offer to visit Hospice patients after making a shadow visit with another Pet Partners therapy team. Just not enough feedback for Spock to make such visits enjoyable for him, because he lives on attention...

Awesome, good job Eva!
The Neutral Dog part is what worries me for Zeus. He tends to bark when another dog enters a room and gets all riled up. *sigh!* Not sure why. He looks and sounds like a dog that's ready to rumble! (he has a loud bark and the fur on his back stands up) But in reality, if that dog were to get close, he'd just want to sniff him and play. We're working on it. He isn't as reactive when he's outside. Today, he did superb at the park walking past other dogs or letting dogs pass him. But when we're indoors, it's totally different.

He's a work in progress.

Can't believe I didn't put that together in my head.

Must take a lot of training time to get through this type of certification!
