Hi, My name is Athena. Yup! I'm a full bred standard poodle. Not a labadoole, or any other mix. I'm very smart and work hard. I sadly failed my service dog test. I can't stand to have my human out of sight, I tend to cry or try to look for them. My human is working with me. So, I'm starting to accept the fact that he will come back. He wont leave forever. So, I'm a service dog in training. I work hard, can find a phone and bring it to my human, I can help him get his meds, find my mom if he needs help and lots of other cool things. I'm still a pup in some ways, but in others I'm a grown up.

WOW...I seen the biggest TV in the world the humans looked HUGE. Today, I went to a movie and out to eat. I did great! The movie was about 3hrs and I sat quietly, I did get up and move a little bet. Mom said it was ok, because I was just trying to get comfortable. At the restaurant I laid there and took a nap while mom ate. at first I got kind of confused when the food lady came to our table. I got up and tried to greet her, mom reminded me to lay down and that was easy. I seen a dog outside so I told mom with a very low muffled bark. She told me, "Athena, thank you." and I put my head back down and back to sleep. Mom was so proud of me. She told dad about how great I did. Mom hopes I will be ready to work with dad soon.


My name is Athena. I'm training to be a service dog

HI, I'm new. My name is Athena. I'm training to be a service dog. Both my parents are working dogs, in NV. My dad is a mobility dog and my mom sniffs out black mold on other dangers for humans(and doggies). I was a runt so I no one wanted me. My mom's owner told everyone I would be a great pet but never a show dog. Well.... my human decided to use my brain not my beauty. I only have 1 challenge, passing the SD test. My human knows I don't NEED to pass the test, but he wants me to. I don't bite, p-p or anything like that but I get really worried when my human walks away. I can sit politely for about 2 minuets, after that I get "ants in my pants" and start trying to get the human who is holding me to go to MY human. I slowly start pulling on the leash and by 10min, I'll cry if I don't see my human. I'm still working on this, but I get so worried my daddy wont come back, when I see my human come back I get overly happy. I like other humans, but I LOVE my human daddy and mommy. Oh... a funny tid-bit about me, I heard goats for fun. Yup... I heard goats. Early in the morning, my mom will take me out to feed and milk the goats, I learned from her cocker spaniel how to heard the goats. I never knew how much fun it could be. Now I wake everyone up early so me and Reagan can get the girls. I picked up this trick when I was 4 months old, the hard thing was learning how hard to nip. The goats know, I wont hurt them so I have to scare them. I sneak up behind them and bark. They freak out and catch up to the heard. If my mom is having a hard time, catching someone I have to "Leg" this is when I grab a leg and hold on, this will slow the goat down so mom can catch them. Reagan is to small to "Leg" hahaha... something I can do and better then him. We compete all the time, but it's all in fun.
