Phase 2!!

Fullerton 491S LAB M 2

Phase 2!!!! This may not seem like a big deal because there are still 8 phases but I am so happy for my boy!!! I have not had a puppy make it to phase 2 since my 2nd puppy. Prudy, puppy #1 was career changed in phase 8, Tahoma, puppy #2 breeder/guide, then Glennie and Spanky, puppies #3 and #6 were both career changed before formal training and Adeline and Sherman, puppies #4 and #5 were both career changed in phase 1. So for me 2 is a big deal. Good job Fuller, I am so very proud of you! Here is what Fuller is up to on campus this week:

Phase #2

  • Preliminary obedience training
  • Exposure to distractions (toys, food, other dogs, cats, etc.)
  • First on-campus workouts with a harness
  • Introduction to the BEST program training techniques (including treadmill sessions)
  • Sessions to teach guidework-specific commands (such as "forward," "Halt," Hopp up," and "steady") and the desired response to those commands
  • On leash introduction to the campus obstacle course


Fullertons brother Forte is officially a breeder. I hope I can raise a Fuller neice or nephew sometime that would be so cool. His other brother Filby is in phase 6 and the last brother Flamenco is currently unaccounted for. If anyone knows his whereabouts I would love to know.

Phase 2, so about how many months does he have left? I wonder if I'll meet him! Probably not if he's in training still when I get there. Hmmm, all the dreaming tee hee.

Keep going Fuller!!

That's how you do it, Fuller! You should be very proud, even though it's only Phase 2. :)

I'm glad you finally got some news about Fullerton. Go, sweet boy! That's exciting news about Forte, too. Those are some good genes!

Forte not official a breeder, the news was passed on incorrectly. He is in the final stages of breeding evaluation. Most likely he will be pulled, but the "official" word is not official yet...
