Congratulations my son Michael & Tikka! They took the Service dog
test on 9/24/13 and passed with a score of 87.5! I am so proud of the dedication and hard work he put into training Tikka
along with trainer Chad Alden of Sentinel Canine. For the past 10 months they have been training together. Thanks Chad!
Tikka passed the Service Dog test on 9/24/13! My son Michael is her handler
and their trainer is Chad Alden of Sentinel Canine.

Hi Cathy, Theo is doing great. He's a big guy 95lbs. We have continued to
bring him up to Mike Citro's. I think I told you that he spent 6 weeks up there for training. What a difference that made.
It was expensive but well worth it. He is well behaved around people but I discourage them from touching him. He tolerates
other dogs when we pass them on a walk. Mike says that's ok because some dogs are not crazy about each other. He still
is quite protective but we have control of him and he is very obedient. We had to put Lily our 13 year old Sato dog
down last month. Theo was very lonely without her. I wish you could see him he is so handsome. Mike and all his trainers
up at the kennel can't get over how beautiful he is compared to the other shepherds up there. Of course that's a compliment
to you for such great breeding. I must say that when Theo is at home he is such a big baby. He would get up in my lap if
he could. Big on belly rubs kisses and hugs!!! I could go on and on bragging about him. I'll give you a break from
listening to this. Thank you for asking about him and thank you for him!! Maureen
(Please note this is written tongue and cheek - but it is all true.)
First, we adore our Theo. He is big and goofy, laid back and fun to be with. He loves
to "read" his newspaper in his outdoor lounge chair. We noticed on your website that many people have written to
you - bragging about what a good dog they have, etc. No one ever says anything bad - why would you - because your dog is the
"number one in the world." So we decided to write you a letter telling what having Theo has "really" been
like: While he is 6 months old he has accomplished a lot!
dug three holes in the backyard
over the gas grill (which is held down with a cinder block)
his own poop and that of the other dog in the house
chewed the bottom
of a cabinet
chewed the down spouts on the gutters
leveled the perrenial garden
the landscape lights
chewed the mortar from the cement steps
humped a 21 year old cat
the other dog's bed
peed in the kitchen 3 times
peed on his own leg numerous times
the insulation on the air conditioner (outside)
And his favorite
TV show is Jersey Shore!
We've attached a picture of Theo in
his favorite patio chair - of course, since the photo, he made a big hole in it so now it is really his and he still has a
spot to read his newspaper.
Thanks - Theo's moms,
Sue and Maureen

Now that's what I call unconditional love! LOL!
Mac was purchased in November 2010 for a diabetic detection
prospect. Amazingly at 8 weeks old he was quickly figuring out his purpose. He has targeted his co-owner's diabetic highs
and lows accurately for the past 4 months. Here is what his owner recently told me...."by the way" , Mac was
three rooms away from Jill, who was asleep behind a closed door. There were three people and another puppy in the room with
us, he stood bolt upright looked at me and barked. Strange, because he never barks at me. I went and got Jill's meter, in
it's little black case, and as soon as he saw it he grabbed it and went running for the door to give it to mummy! Her sugar
was 238! He truly is an amazing dog, I can't thank you enough for bringing us to a dog like him! It really was a fated pairing.
