When Range was born, he was one of only three in his litter. His mom, Tula, was very attentive to almost a fault. These three boys grew pretty fast and before we knew it Ranger was really a tank. We put special bumpers in the whelping box to keep him on his side to keep him from being a swimmer puppy. We knew Ranger was destined for special work and as he grew he proved to be an ideal student.
This also has so much to do with Ranger's parents and family. It takes a lot of dedication, patience and great care to achieve what Ranger has in this short period of time. Congratulations to Ranger and his family! Great job!!
Hi Penny & Joel,
Just wanted to check in & fill you in on all of our adventures with Ranger lately!
As you know, Ranger was enrolled in the K-9 Good Citizen Obedience class. Today he earned the following certificates: the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy, the AKC Canine Good Citizen, the AKC Advanced Canine Good Citizen, and the Urban Canine Good Citizen! He was the class favorite.
We are so proud of him! We will keep him in training until we feel like he is ready for the Therapy Test. He is still quite a baby, but has done a terrific job.
He just turned 10 months old and is weighing in at 87.5 pounds (with one foot off of the scale 😂)! He has been a big boy from the start.
Ranger is such a smart and funny dog. He opens doors (so we must keep certain ones locked from a lock at the top), follows Adam around the yard when he mows, thinks he's a lap dog, loves to ride in the car (will sleep all 3 hours to the lake house), has to have a fan on him while in his cage since he's hot 24/7,& loves storms and wants to go outside in the rain (even with the tornado siren going off). He makes us laugh and is a constant source of entertainment. 😍
We love this guy and are so thankful we found CaveInn! He is the best combination of Tula and Robin. 💙
