Some of the underneath of her hair is dyed teal.
10 MONTHS OLD! Are you joking me!
Things we have conquered last month succulent shopping, the arcade, meetups, off leash heel, more planes, and DISNEYLAND multiple times!
Love this chunk to the moon and back even when she pisses me off to no ends ♥️🤍

i'm extremely exhausted today from doing everything with the puppies! I don't regret it one bit, and i'm still in such a great mood. I haven't had a good day in a while, but yesterday was a good day. I can't wait for my boy to come home and start training!
Check our pawtners highlight and follow!
We had such an awesome time celebrating Cora’s first birthday today! We visited the aquarium, IKEA, two international markets, and a restaurant, making for a very full day. Cora did EXTREMELY well at the aquarium considering the ridiculous number of people in attendance today, and definitely stole the show 😉. She wasn’t fazed by the sea lions barking, people clapping, or the “AHH ITS A PUPPY” that seemed to follow us in every exhibit. The rest of the day was pretty typical in terms of outings, but she was tired from the aquarium so we had a little more difficulty with things like not sitting down every 30 seconds. All in all, we couldn’t be prouder of our sweet girl. #LifeWithCoraAnn
Welcome to the pack Sven! This little man exceeded expectations on the temperament test, and did absolutely amazing. He's so sweet and so adventurous and i'm so excited to start training. This is just the beginning. 2 more weeks until you come home!
(For those wondering, this is "Jack")
Some of the dogs doing box work during group class today. Builds focus and increases concentration. And which dog doesn’t need that?

We are so excited to be reviewing Apollo’s Apparel products! We were recently sent this GORGEOUS bandana featuring Disney dogs on a light blue background. This bandana is REVERSIBLE! The other side of ours is a charcoal gray. Between getting to chose your size, and the two designs for the bandana, these are very customizable. I had a pleasure working with the owner Madison, who was very prompt in her communication, and shipping. I was sent tracking information the day after I placed my order. Now let’s talk specs: the sizing on the bandana (we ordered medium) is exactly what was described in the “sizing” highlight on her page. This fit perfectly over Lucky’s collar, and didn’t move around at all. The detail and quality of the fabric is beyond what I thought it could be! It is so soft, and the images are very clear. Lastly, the stitching was FLAWLESS, you can’t even see it, it’s so perfect! We are so pleased with this product and we can’t wait to order more from them! Please go check out their page and give them some love!
Sprinkled (a bit excessively) with turmeric and black ground pepper. Ready in 14 hours. Will show you the results tomorrow!! So stay tuned!!!

Yes, I would like the Shepherd special: filet mignon raw and bloody, swimming in a delicate bone broth sauce with baby peas and carrots. A side of lamb, green tripe and a fresh 12 inch bully stick for desert please.
We used these treats today on a public access training session in a pet store, poppy was so focused on me when I had these treats🤣
Poppy agrees they’re berrygood 😉💕 we hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day ! Restaurants and busy places get very overwhelming for me so Poppy, my partner and I stayed in for dinner and hade a take away 😋
We’ve embraced the true English weather and got all muddy ! It’s annoying having to keep washing the mud off but poppy loves it and it’s a great opportunity to let poppy just be a dog.
Working dogs are still dogs and need to let off steam and have a break. 💪🏼 -
What do you guys think of this editing style, do you like it ? When it’s summer and lighter we will hopefully use a new editing theme 📸
Perfect down stay in Aldi ! This is something that’s been hard for Poppy but she absolutely blew me away today, she kept an amazing down stay the whole time I was packing my bags. 👜
We’ve been training a lot recently ready for summer shows, we’re super excited to start showing and performing demos this year 💪🏼 Do you guys like going to dog shows ? We love them, we’ve currently got 39 rosettes 🏵
Im so sorry I haven’t posted much recently !
I went to a Victorian festival and played Queen Victoria 🤩( if you want to find out more check out @youngqueenvictoria )
Sadly poppy couldn’t come with me to the festival because I had to focus on acting. This was a huge achievement for me to perform in front of thousands of people ! Poppy really missed me but she got some yummy beef lung from @browns_pet_range to make up for it 🥰
We also went to the polling station today to do some quick training to get her used to polling stations and the atmosphere there.
Don’t forget to vote today, your country needs your vote 🗳 #dogsatpollingstations2019 #ppeepsforever
Okay this picture was just too adorable not to share but I also need to get real for a moment... as cute as this moment is, it was actually a really horrible day for both Rambo and I. A lot of handlers won’t share the struggles along with the good days but I do. Today Rambo had his first SERIOUSLY off day in a very long time. He was very fearful of tons of random things that he normally has never ever even looked twice at. For example he did NOT want to walk by a girl in a prom gown and when we did he flipped out and was very scared of it (which is bizarre because there’s never been an issue with flowy fabric before for him) and we also had to warm him up to the characters during this meet and greet which as a lot of you know is VERY odd of him seeing as he’s met a lot of characters and people in bizarre costumes like at cons before with no issues or hesitation at all. He also wasn’t holding a heel very well for some reason. All these things are so far out of character for him especially without any significantly worrisome outings before that might have lead up to this behavior that I am just floored as to what happened today. We didn’t have any outings prior to this that might have explained this severely off behavior, no incidents or scares before this.. so this truly was an extremely odd day. I’m hoping that because it was so out of character and happened all at once with no explanation that this day was just a fluke and the next day we go out to work at the MOA like that he will be back to his normal self.. but still as a handler I worry for him as I know he’s too old for a fear period now so if this behavior continues it would mean he can no longer work as my service dog. Fingers crossed it was a random fluke bad day and that he will recover and be back to his normal happy go lucky carefree self soon. He will be taking the rest of the weekend off and possibly more this week to relax and recover. #servicedoghandler#dogsofinstagram#psychiatricservicedog#servicedogintraining#rescuedog#servicedogsofinstagram#mutt#dog#dogs#puppy#dogsofminnesota#lab#minnesota#workingdog#servicedog#puppysofinstagram#chronicillness#germanshepherd#servicedogteam

Positivity and the community.
It seems at times that people want nothing more than to sit in chat boxes and rant about why everyone else is terrible or what this dog did wrong but Im frankly finished with it. We are done interacting with or engaging in drama or childish behavior. After speaking at length with my therapist and psychiatric team I have decided to start using this instagram platform for positivity and self improvement.
Welcome to Saturday’s Successes! Feel free to share this post and talk about what your dog or you succeeded in this week! Anything big or small! What are you proud of? Tag #servicedogsuccesses so everyone can check it out!
This week Ive had to come to terms with the fact that I’m likely never getting the vision in my left eye back. Because of this Cedric and I have been hard at work teaching the basics of guide tasks! I have a deep fear of going completely blind and I want to make sure in the event that occurs that my dog is fully prepared to assist me through it!
At the start he was very hesitant to pull ahead of me and place any weight in the harness but by the second session he was placing weight forward and able to reliably keep pressure in the handle! I’m so excited and proud of him for being able to cross that barrier and keep learning! Cedric is such a good dog and I am so proud to have helped him grow into the phenomenal working dog hes become 🧡
