Jed is just over 6 months old now and is maturing into a great young dog. He does some basic obedience once a week and is about to begin a 10 week course for his canine good citizen puppy/bronze award. This will then hopefully lead onto silver and gold.
As you know i work in a school for children with special needs and Jed has been into school to visit on lots of occasions.
Last week i was approached by the head teacher who said how good an influence Jed was on the children and how well behaved he was in school and would i consider him becoming the school's therapy dog?
I was amazed and proud to say the least and agreed to look into the training and registration.
Well i sent off for the registration pack and am awaiting it's arrival, then Jed will have to be assessed before he is officially known as a PAT dog (Pets as therapy).
He will have to wear a little yellow jacket with his PAT dog badge on.
I'm so hoping that it all goes to plan, i will keep you all updated.

It's Mother's day here today and when given the choice of what I wanted to do I chose to go for a walk in the countryside with the dogs and have some lunch at a canalside pub.
We started off accross the farmer's fields towards the canal, crossing over styles and passing through 5 bar gates.
