Elvis goes to school

Elvis and I were invited to attend classes at the Idaho Science and Technology Charter School on Thursday, Feb. 21 and would like to thank the school for the opportunity to discuss Spinone and therapy work. We are invited every other year to visit the school where during the course of our presentation, the students ask questions then write a report from their notes.

Elvis enjoys the visits although he normally falls asleep about ten minutes into the presentation. The students are always amazed when I demonstrate how to strip a Spinone and can’t believe that it doesn’t hurt the dog. They also find it humorous when I demonstrate how Elvis has regressed in his therapy training and now ignores some of the commands he was once so sharp on.

Explaining the importance of therapy work

But then he spent six of his years as a therapy dog and now that he’s a retired senior, I guess he’s earned the right to ignore me from time to time.
