Toby's second report card!!

Just received Toby's second report card!
Sounds like he's doing well and he has been neutered.
Attached below his his recent report card - please view larger if you'd like to read it :)
I'm very proud of my boy and he's doing much better in training then last time. Some places he needs to do a little better, but I'm still so happy!
Enjoy,

(Update - just got mail, Toby's harness picture taken at school enclosed!! Post coming tomorrow)

Picture of the report card from Toby's trainer down at the school. He got mostly a plus for each thing (which is great), and only got a W (working on) in a couple

COMMENTS: Toby gets along well with his roommates even though he likes to play rough. I am giving him a little more responsibility each day hoping that this will help with his constant sniffing. He has been showing some harness reaction when the harness is brought out (will try to escape) but then is fine when it is put on. This seems to be improving at this point! Due to just getting neutered he has not been able to work for the last week.


Hope this helps!

I bigified to read Toby's report card. I cannot blame him for wanting to sniff a lot, but he seriously needs to stop messing around with the harness. I think these teachers are going to be tough graders.

It sounds like Toby's getting along furry well in his freshman term at college. I wonder why they wait that long for neutering instead of having it done before college. Come to think of it, that might work well for human college students, too, in a lot of cases.

Wow, keep up the good work! I admire a dog with purpose! I am working on finding my purpose - I know there has to be more to life than sleeping on the couch and sneaking treats.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I am following your blog and hope you might follow mine as well!

Your pal, Pip

I can guess how Toby feels with the harness. I'm exactly the same way with my collar. I can't imagine how much itchier the whole harness would be.

Congrats, Toby! Stop sniffing around hahaha!

Nice report card... Grammy was surprised to hear that Toby hadn't been neutered a while back. Is there a reason for that with guide dogs? OC
