Certified Crisis Response Therapy Dog

PUP WITH A PURPOSE

Dunkin was selected with the purpose of becoming a full time therapy dog. He began his training in Tina’s classroom in the Fall of 2021. As a high school teacher, she used their first therapy dog, Harley James the Dachshund in this capacity but found an increased need that a Golden Retriever would have a more natural capacity to meet.

DEPLOYMENTS AND ACTIVITIES

On 10/2022 Dunkin and Tina travelled to Fort Myers, FL as a Crisis Response team for Canines 4 Christ (a Christian Ministry using Therapy Dogs to share the love of Christ). Read more about Dunkin’s Therapy Dog to Hurricane Ian in Fort Myers, FL.

In March of 2022, Dunkin became a Vitas Hospice Paw Pal. Read more about Dunkin with Vitas

PROGRESSION AND GOALS

Since becoming a part of our family at 7 weeks old, our first goal has been to bond and make him feel comfortable in his “new pack”. The goal was to socialize him by meeting 100 people by the time he was three months old. (https://www.dogstardaily.com/) and we did it!

Dunkin 8 weeks old

He quickly advanced in the basics of potty training, crate training and basic obedience training and earned his AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy (Socialization, Training, Activity, Responsibility) at 4 months old then the AKC Canine Good Citizen and the AKC Canine Urban Citizen at 7 months old https://www.akc.org/products-services/training-programs/canine-good-citizen/

He qualified as a therapy dog and obtained certification through Canines for Christ https://k9forchrist.org on December 21, 2021 at 33 weeks old!

With further training through Canines 4 Christ and his first deployment in response to Hurricane Ian on October 7, 2022 he qualified as a Crisis Response Dog.

Pray for Dunkin (and mom) that he continues to grow and be a healthy, well adjusted, obedient therapy dog that can provide comfort and hope to everyone he meets. In Jesus Name.
