AVKC Member Trains & Certifies Service Dog

Argos will be 4 years old in August 2019, but today he passed the exam/evaluation by the BC Guide & Service Dog Division of the Justice Institute to become a Service Dog for Tasha Lee.

Tasha got Argos as a puppy and started with Basic Obedience Training.  Argos showed potential to become a Service Dog and Tasha researched the requirements of taking on such a task.

It is not just teaching your dog to sit, down, stay, come, etc.  There are over 40 skills they must master to become a service dog.  It takes a lot of time and patience.  Tasha persevered through the training despite struggling with her health issues.

Argos now “officially” works for Tasha to aid her in her day-to-day tasks.

When you see them in the community, please keep your distance.  As much as everyone loves to acknowledge and pet a well behaved dog, Argos has a job to do and he can not do his job if he is distracted.  (Tasha will thank you for your understanding.)

Congratulations on this milestone event!
