Gideon will eventually be a balance dog for Bob, if he needs him incase his balance goes with the MS. Right now the training is basic obedience, things like sit, stay, etc. Because we want to progress the training into service training, Bob got Gideon a service dog in training vest so we can take him out. He needs to get used to being out in public, and get used to people. He has learned to sit when someone says "can I say hello?" so that people can approach him to pet him. He'll learn later that when he is at work he has to focus, but he is still young and shy, so getting him used to new people is good. We took him to Bowling on Friday, had friends over last night, and took him to the apple store at the mall today. He has had a very social weekend!
