Default Keeno is going into Service Dog Program for veterans

Monday Keeno is going into training to be a service dog for a veteran who is suffering from PTSD. We went for an evaluation on Wed. And this was suggested. Sat there for hours with the trainer who does the service training. He will have his obedience done and then his working service dog program. He will then meet his veteran and do more training together. They will then start their lives together. I will miss him dearly but he is going to do wonders for a veteran who needs him. Sad but happy at the same time. Keeno will get his working vest when he gets his certification.

What a great service you have performed to deliver Keeno to the next phase of his life! Your child has sprouted wings and is leaving the nest. It's difficult to be an empty nester. Keeno must be a very special dog indeed

Thank-you Moriah that means alot to me. I look at Keeno sleeping on the couch beside me and I feel sad but so proud of him at the same time. Monday will be hard though. He has been selected for a lady veteran who has a bad case of PTSD and he will watch out for her and love her when she is stressed or just down in the dumps......

I am feeling sad Keeno is leaving even though I am doing the right thing it is still eating at me. My fear is that he thinks I have deserted him. We do not know what they are capable of thinking. I do not know how the people that raise the seeing eye pups get through this. Keeno is a wonderful dog and 100% Czech working line. He is so intelligent and intuitive he will make his veteran feel safe and secure. He loves to be on the go all the time. Being with his veteran is just what he needs ad he will be going every where with his person. No more dogs for me. Nope.

I can understand what feelings you are going through and what different emotions you will feel both good and bad for letting your pup go and do this amazing thing, I am unsure of how old he is as I am a newbie to both site and GSD, but if anything like my children, no matter what their age they will always be your babies! My eldest daughter left home last year got married and moved to a different country, so yes I do have a little idea of the seperation anxiety you will encounter but if you focus on all the good... the positives, it will keep this big grin on your face for sure (Big hugs)

thanks for all your support. Keeno is 2 1/2 yrs. old. I rescued him 11 months ago and brought him back to good health. I had him neutered and got him all his vaccinations. He was barely fed when he lived at the other place.Right now he is outside playing with my golden retriever and wacky little beagle. I just hope he knows how much I do love him.One minute I am happy for him and the next minute I am sad. but too..

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! My daughter has a service dog from a very reputable agency. We are still close to the couple who raised her dog the first 18 months (puppy raisers). They follow my daughter and support her in many ways. I know this is very hard, but trust me, you are making such an impact on this vet's life.
