Brandy on duty / Brandy trabajando

SERVICE DOG In Training Medical Alert 2.5 x 5 inch Sew-on Black Rim PatchAs of last Monday, our bright Labrador Brandy, started her basic training to become a service dog. With only two classes, Brandy behavior has improved dramatically. Learning how to walk besides Hubby’s electric Go Go scooter has been her greatest achievement this week. Her trainer is great with her and has been helping us understand Brandy’s body language.
It has been our dream since she started showing her abilities (See my previous blog: Brandy) that she could help Hubby when I’m not around doing things like bringing him the meds, shoes, etc. But most of all, Brandy has become an Emotional Service Dog for him. She makes him laugh even we I can’t.
With these training classes not only Brandy gets to learn, but also us with the understanding of how we should conduct her in our environment and out of it. I hope that in just a few more classes, I can walk her without a leash and prevent her from running away from me. And hubby gets to walk her too without struggling with her. For hubby it is a big challenge because that’s his baby girl, his true companion and his soul mate.

Desde el lunes pasado, nuestra brillante labrador Brandy, comenzó sus clases de entrenamiento básico para perro de Servicio. Con tan solo dos clases, su comportamiento ha mejorado dramáticamente. Aprendió a caminar al lado de la motora eléctrica de mi esposo y esto ha sido su mayor logro esta semana. Su entrenadora es excelente con ella y nos ha estado ayudando a entender el lenguaje corporal de Brandy.

Ha sido nuestro sueño desde que empezó a demostrar sus habilidades (ver mi blog anterior: Brandy) que ella podía ayudar a mi esposo trayéndole sus medicamentos, zapatos, etc. Pero sobretodo, Brandy se ha convertido en una perra de Servicio Emocional para él. Lo hace reír cuando ni yo puedo.

Con estas clases de entrenamiento no solo Brandy aprende, sino también nosotros con el entendimiento de como debemos conducirla en nuestro ambiente y fuera del mismo. Yo espero que dentro de poco pueda pasearla sin correa y prevenir que salga corriendo cada vez que la sacamos. Y para mi esposo, que la pueda pasear sin tener que estar halándola. Para Juan es un gran reto por ella ser su bebé, su compañía verdadera, su alma gemela.
