Born right here at Pet Country Estate, our very own "BETTY WHITE" is training to become an owner-trained Service Dog. Owner RIE SARAIVA shares her latest adventures with us:

"I could never find words to adequately describe just now much I love this pup! She adores her big sister, our black lab. They love to play their favourite pastime "pass-the-stick" and chasing each other.

Betty's training is going wonderfully. She now goes with me almost everywhere. I've started a new volunteer position at our local Organ Donors Awareness office and she comes with me regularly. We've been working with an excellent/experienced trainer. Betty's learning a ton thanks to Sarah McMurdo, from Paws Forward in Strathroy. 

She is now able to assist me a variety of tasks including: pushing accessible door buttons that are difficult for me to reach, and retrieving items I drop. She's also learning to retrieve specific items, pointed at with a laser pointer!  She stays in "place" on command, and I can even walk into the next room to the office and she'll stay.  It's hard to believe she's already 8 months old and such a fantastic worker. She understands that when she is vested she is not allowed to greet people or dogs. I can't wait to tell all of you about our continued progress. She's just the sweetest, most cuddly little love bug! I will be forever grateful to you Liz, for breeding such a beautiful, calm, and well-tempered Golden!"
