Arrival Story: Anakin was part of a litter that was looking for homes. He was the runt at first, but since then, it seems that he has outgrown his estranged brothers and sisters. Anakin and I grew to be the perfect match to work together.
Bio: I have one blue eye and one brown eye! I'm a David Bowie dog!
A PSD, you say?: I was just a normal everyday dog until I began working as my mommy's partner. My mommy was diagnosed a psychiatric illness and after several different treatments and several doctors, it was suggested as an alternative treatment for her illnesses may be to work with a PSD. The notion was discussed with her therapist who was supportive of our training and work.
I was trained on basic obedience and public access in three different training courses by my instructor Kathy. My mommy tasked trained me herself to assist her with her panic attacks as well as other tasks.
When I am not "working", I enjoy running, playing with squeaky toys, and an occasional swim.
