Favorite Food: He gets Taste of the Wild and sometimes some raw. He likes treats of course!
Favorite Walk: He doesn't really walk- He prances. Tuvok is happy to go anywhere.
Best Tricks: Tuvok is my service dog. He is also learning show ring style obedience and Rally. He can bring the phone in an emergency, pick up items, do alert and responce work for anxiety, panic attacks and depression. He has saved my life many times.
Arrival Story: I went with my mother to help her pick out a Boston puppy and to give the pups temperament tests. Two male pups passed with flying colors, so mother bought BOTH of them and said, "Here, take this one home." She told me the pup is her dog....but I'm to raise him.
Christmas Day Mom gave Tuvok to me and registered him in my name. Who says that all Christmas pups are unloved?!
Bio: Tuvok is now a full service dog! Every day he gets a little better at his job!
He has his RN (rally novice) title and a leg towards his RA (rally advanced) title. Tuvok got his RA title today. He got 99 and first place on his 2nd leg and 100 and first place on his 3rd leg. We got his third RE(rally Excellent) leg with a first place and a score of 99. Tuvok has his first two legs towards his CD (companion Dog) title with a 1st and 2nd place.
I don't have the money to show Tuvok like I'd like to, but he has been trained in Novice and open obedience. We are working on his utility dog skills and he is doing well. We have time to get it right!
