Kacie says, "What a good reader you are! "

Kacie is a Golden Retriever. Goldens are athletic and fun-loving dogs, very social and especially suitable as family companions. They can be overly exuberant and enthusiastic, which can be distracting during training lessons, but they love to learn and are eager to please, and that is a winning combination.

Walker is relaxed and comfortable listening to a story about Clifford, the Big Red Dog.

Walker is a German Shepherd Dog. German Shepherd Dogs are strong, agile, and muscular. One of the most recognizable of breeds, they are also one of the most intelligent. Loyal and courageous, they are protective of their family. A devoted and faithful companion, the GSD is often called a “one-man dog.” They can vary in color, but the strong, rich colors are preferred.
