I cannot even begin to thank the Pet Athletic Club and their head trainer Scott Nordgren enough for helping make a dream of mine come true! A little over a year and a half ago I brought Daisy Mae, an eight week old cockapoo, home and welcomed her into my life. I bought Daisy with a very important plan in mind; I wanted to train her to be a therapy dog. I have seen firsthand after volunteering in a hospital how much joy a dog can bring to people and their lives; patient faces that usually showed no expression or hope would light up when the doggie brigade arrived. After witnessing this, I knew that Daisy could have a bigger role than just being my pet. I enrolled Daisy in puppy classes and we began working with a trainer right away. However, after several months of lessons and a board and train, that cost $1,500 dollars, Daisy was only performing sit, down, and her stay command was touch and go. In addition, she had a hard time settling down around strangers and was pulling on her leash. The trainer let me know he did not think she was therapy dog material and I had pretty much given up on the dream I had once yearned for…. that was until I went to the PAC and Scott. After meeting with him for an evaluation, I decided I needed to give Daisy one last shot and signed her up for the board and train. That is the best decision I ever made! The PAC’s board and train is night and day compared to the other I had taken her to. Daisy came out knowing 14 commands and able to work off her leash. In addition, Scott, knowing I wanted her to be a therapy dog, had gotten crutches, a wheel chair and walker to help get her familiar with the elements that would be part of the test. At the Monday classes that followed, he made sure all my questions were answered and provided valuable tips. I will admit I was probably one of Scott’s worst clients, the training and commands did not come easy to me. Scott was so patient and once I finally started following all the rules Daisy flourished. I am so proud and ecstatic to say Daisy and I took our therapy test on Sunday Oct. 13, 2013 and she passed with flying colors. I truly believe this is a testament to Scott, the PAC and the values/dedication both of them have for the work they do.
