Busy, Busy, Busy...but a couple pictures...



This is our training group posing outside City Hall



Now, just the dogs...Homer, Hunter, Caber, Haley and Riker


And me looking particularly bedraggled... haley looks good though! Haley is Golden Retriever, but she really doesn't have a Golden Retriever's face. She has a long, narrow little nose with almond shaped eyes, as opposed to her brothers' squared snouts and round eyes. She looks sort of collie-ish.

You're both beautiful! So I'm curious, how affectionate can you be with a service dog...I'm assuming there is work time and there is play time? Is Haley trained that when she's wearing a specific collar or harness that it's all business, but once those come off she can behave like a happy puppy?

Maggie,

Haley does get downtime. When she is wearing her jacket,she is expected to behave like a service dog, but "out of uniform" she should be well-behaved, but can fraternize with civilians. In other words, chasing balls and stuff is ok!
