As you will know from my
post about Cleveland’s retirement
I had been considering a successor dog, but hadn’t made a firm decision. After that post, I thought, talked, researched, and thought some more. I then decided that I wanted a successor dog. So off to the application process I go. I decided to stay with a Canadian school because it would be less stressful traveling, etc. I spoke to both the school in Ottawa and the school in Oakville, and found out that Ottawa was at minimum six month’s to complete the application process do to there current training schedule. Weather that was them blowing smoke, or what have you, I didn’t feel like being jerked around, so decided after discussion with grads from Oakville and many a phone call to trainers and alumni I decided this would be a good fit.
I made the application process, go accessible PDF’s go, did the medical and sat on a waiting list for about a month waiting for an interview. I got that interview completed, and passed.
So I knew then that there would be a waiting list, as this was a smaller school.
I wasn’t expecting to here anything from anyone until The beginning of next year, but again, I was mistaken.
I received a voicemail from the operations manager, no reason what he needed to speak about, just call him. OK, call him, get his voicemail, go phone tag go, leave a message. He calls me back and we touch base. He indicates they had a spot for me, in ***tomorrow!*** class! I kinda go what the? and boggle about it for about 30 seconds. We discuss travel arrangements, and well here I go for doggie number two!
I’ll be keeping this blog as up to date as I can over my training, and there might even be audio, but we’ll see what comes of it.
Until next time!
