   Leave a bone for GiDay Captain Moonlight

Nicknames:
Although his registered name is a great one, Linda used to call the puppies to her with "Puppy, pupy, puppy", which became "Bubby", which has changed yet again to "Bobby". Sounds like a name to me!

Quick Bio:
-purebred-service dog

Birthday:
December 4th 2010

Likes:
Bobby loves to do public access work. He has learned to not be a social butterfly and to focus instead on me.

Pet-Peeves:
His pet peeves are the fly by patters who try to distract him fom his work as an Assistance dog.

Favorite Toy:
Tennis balls in socks! The sock prevents the coating to erode teeth and stops the ball being a choking hazard. PLus it makes a great pull toy.

Favorite Food:
He loves raw chicken legs best of all. Attacks it with gusto! He loves the real meat treats from New Zealand, too.

Favorite Walk:
Around Lake Wendouree to watch the swans, water fowl and ducks. He also loves to go to the shops and be admired by people.

Best Tricks:
Being a velcro dog that keeps a close watch on me - he has learned so much so quickly both his trainer and I are amazed and very pleased.

Arrival Story:
Captain Moonlight is a Silver standard poodle puppy. His breeder is Linda Johnson of GiDay Standard Poodles in Melbourne Australia. His sire is American Champion, Canadian Champion, Australian Champion, Violet Sky Over Marechal (imp Canada) "Skyler". Dam: GiDay Alice Springs, "Allie". It took a lot of seraching to find a trustworthy breeder following our last experience with a registered breeder! However, Linda has assured me that he will indeed be the perfect Assistance Dog! He is settled, calm, playful, loves to retrieve and comes happily and reliably when called. Linda has done a brilliant job with her puppies in giving them such a solid start. He is a smart, responsive little fellow who has strong personality and a great sense of fun.

Bio:
Bobby passed his Public Access Test with flying colours using the Assistance Dogs International form. His State registered tester was delighted with him and he certainly loves the work. We put up only part of it on YouTube so we wouldn't bore people. He has his Victorian Public Transport Assistance Animal Pass, too, so we are now able to make trips that were previously impossible. Never thought it would be possible to be this independent!!!

The Groups I'm In:
PSD Service Dog, Psychiatric Service Dogs and those in training, Service Dogs Group

Bobby has successfully trained in both Assistance Dog tasks and Public Access. YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjgTzMjdIbU He has his Victorian Public Transport Travel Pass for Assistance Dogs. Yay! This means we will have much more freedom - I could not use Public transport before having an Assitance Dog. I'm just not stable enough without Bobby doing balance and brace work, helping me stand from sitting and up and down stairs and ramps. How great it is to have this medical intervention on four paws!! On another tack - given that 65,000 Australians will attempt suicide each year, there should be more Asistance Dogs available.

I've Been On Dogster Since:
January 18th 2011 More than 3 years!
