How do I start volunteering with her?
I would like to visit hospitals/nursing homes/other places with my German Shepherd. She was sick for a while, but we found out it was her thyroid and she's doing a million times better. She has the perfect temperament . She lets kids be rough with her, without being aggressive or defensive. If she's in danger, I have to take her away, otherwise, she'll take it. She's not shy, but she's not hyper. She's always happy. And when she is frustrated with someone or in pain, and wants to be left alone, she licks the person until they stop. She did that with the vet when he was poking a sore spot when she had a skin infection. She's very good with commands, like sit and stay. She loves her treats, but if you tell her to stay, she will stay even if she can hear you in the treat jar. How do I get started? I want more information, but I have no idea where to begin. I read about how one program tests dogs, but they don't have any tests in Wisconsin.
