Tucker Travels to CO

I’m proud of my pup. My husband and I committed ourselves to being super involved and active in training, socializing and new experiences with our pup (forever of course) in his first formidable year(s) of his life. Goal? A well trained, socialized and happy pup. Other fun goals perhaps, therapy work or? Who knows. We really just want to see exactly where his interest lies as we try things along the way. So some things we do include travel, stores, crowds and so on. At nearly 6 months old it seems we have his interest. This last weekend he took his first big trip to Colorado and I wanted to share some pictures. He experienced stairs, elevators, moving walk ways, airport, trains, new dogs (my sons), different potty spots (not his favorite lol), tons of people (strollers, wheelchairs, luggage, babies) and so on. He’s a natural so far.... apart from navigating altitude adjustments we did very good.(even taking time for training lol) He loved his Colorado mountains experience too! Tucker’s travels just began!

Lovely photos!! It looks like Tucker had a very fun time in CO. I would love to know how you managed to fly with him - did you find somewhere that let him in the cabin as a therapy dog in training? Did you have to buy him a seat due to his size? We are looking into training our Teddy for therapy work.

Tucker is my Support Animal. I’m sure you know but I’ll mention it is not the same as a Service Animal which is trained to Service a disability like blind for example. While I will pursue therapy training possibly, that doesn't get him on a plane. An animal has to provide a service or support (and you have to provide the document to the airlines that give permission to accompany the owner) in order for him to fly. No I didn’t buy him his own seat. Right now he’s small enough to fly with me and fit at my feet in the front row. Going forward I am unsure how comfortable I would be placing him next to others and would largely depend on his training. I do not think as a support animal that it gives me rights to make others uncomfortable (that’s me and I’m super sensitive about that) so I’ll base it off how well he continues to do, his size and such. He’s super disciplined already in crowds and the like. I am training him quite intensely really. But he’s still a puppy so we are far from “perfect” lol !! Hope this makes some sense 🙂 he has the privilege to fly but that is just that. A privilege so with that I take it so seriously and train accordingly. :-))

Thanks for this thoughtful reply, I hadn't realized he is an ESA. Kudos to you for all you're doing to train him for success in that capacity, and for your consideration of others in the process.

Of course. Yes I wasn’t clear. 🙂 and thanks for the compliments too. I sure never want to offend anyone that has a support animal but to be honest I feel like that is a designation that is widely abused too. So for us anyway I sure want Tucker to be incredibly trained so he’s well prepared in all situations. And frankly I would regardless. LOL I’m a little obsessed with training Hahahaha 🐾💕
