Hello! I am new to the site and I am a cocker named Adam. I'm not 1010% sure of his breeding as he was a rescue. I am sure he was one of the no-no breeds between a parti and a solid because of his white markings on his nose and throat, but he is a very interesting coloring with tan on his face and feet and he is black and white everywhere else (i have now looked at the colorings and wonder if he might be the blue roan tri, or have that somewhere in him). I do believe he is all cocker though!
Adam and i were just certified as a therapy dog team last saturday! Adam received his AKC Canine Good Citizen certification and his Therapy Dogs International certification! And to top if off, Adam is ONLY 1!!! He is an amazing dog! Adam and I are going to our first visit next thursday at an elementary school! We will be visiting special needs children during their field day! He will also be working at a summer camp for autistic kids and another summer camp for physically handicapped kids! He LOVES kids and this will be a great program for him! We are both really excited!
Adam is brilliant! I have never met a smarter dog! I am thinking about training him for Obedience trials with AKC and possibly Rally Trials! I also think he will perform well in agility so we may begin that a little this summer as well!!!
We are going after the AKC Therapy Dog certification right now! Need our 50 visits and hours! Cant wait to get started!!!
Mary and Adam
