Veda’s Service Dog Training Log

Service Dog Training Log for “Veda”
Celhaus Vivacious
the former Miss Purple from the
VV litter.

My friend, Laurie, is training Veda to be a service dog.  This training log details everything Veda learns on her way to becoming certified as a service dog.  Her training is so intense that I have created a page for each month’s entries and evaluations.

Veda at 27 weeks
“So proud of our girl.  First public access work in weeks.  Nothing phased her.  She did Meets & Greets with several store associates and a three-year-old little boy.  She was so gentle with him.  Gave him a kiss on the cheek and he gave her a big hug.  Such a cool girl. She prances while in working heel position.  In the photo, she was very distracted by Bill, who was loading the feed cart 10′ away, but she maintained the sit stay.”
