Did you see the movie, Up? Dug the dog character in Up, embodies the ideal temperament and qualities of a service or therapy dog.
Teacher. Facilitator. Social media marketer. Champion of the small. Rose, hydrangea & organic veggie cultivator living in Pacific NW household ruled by tuxedo cat. (Currently living in the UK at RAF Lakenheath in a household ruled by a Lhaso Apso doggie.)
Pets in the military move with their families and often travel internationally. Planning and preparation in advance result in happier traveling with dogs. Special preparations need to be made for air travel with dogs.
