July: Meet Levi
Meet Levi!! Not only is he handsome but the personality on this guy is endless. He loves the camera, dressing up, doing tricks and can balance over 25 treats on his nose if mom stacks them right! Perhaps that’s why he has over 20K followers on his Instagram @life_of_mr_levi.
From the moment we brought him home at 8 weeks old we knew he was special. Completely opposite from all our previous Goldens, Levi wasn’t interested in swimming or obsessively fetching balls. However, he was extremely observant and interested in learning. I knew this guy needed a job!
We started training and socializing right away. He loved his classes, especially when the instructor used him as an example, so he could show off his skills. At 6 months old he had earned his AKC S.T.A.R Puppy, Canine Good Citizen, Community Canine, Urban CGC and Introduction to Therapy Dog.
Still much too young to do therapy work we kept him busy and discovered he had many other interests. Levi engaged in Barn Hunt, Agility, Rally and his personal favorite Lure courses! He loves chasing a trash bag on a string so much we would take him to every dog festival in town that had a lure course. He even earned an AKC Fast CAT Novice ribbon!
Levi passed certification for Therapy Dog work at 2 yrs old and has been mending and stealing hearts ever since. Witnessing the pure joy, endless smiles and comfort he brings to others is truly a blessing.
