I was originally going to train Star (Mal/Sib rescue) because she seemed more caring and receptive to my needs. Then my physio made it clear I wouldn't need a dog out of the house. So now I've been lightly training both to help me in the house. Icy is good at being told to get things or when I fell and needed help he knew to howl and bark. Star is good at following my around at heel and she takes me to the bathroom and back and waits till I sit down before she leaves. She always returns to check on me. Icy is about 4 (rescue Mal we've had for 2 years) and Star is only just 2 (we've had her for about a year).

Apart from a few falls I think I will be able to take the dogs out soon. My physio said maybe in 6 weeks I will be free to go out on my own. I'll get used to going out everyday for a short walk and work with the dogs in the house. Then add a dog to the walk.

It all sounds good, lets see if I can do it!
