From Service Dog Failure to Surfer Dog Success!

January 23, 2010

You’ve heard the expression, “Be yourself”?

You’ve heard that we should each develop those gifts and talents inherent within us in order to be the best we can be?

Richochet was born to be a service dog. His owner began training him from the day he was born. He was naturally gifted, and his future looked promising.

But as he grew, his instincts took over. He started chasing birds. He would be a danger to a disabled person. His life as a service dog would never be fulfilled.

Then his owner decided to nurture another one of his natural instincts…surfing!

Watch this heart-warming video to see how he was trained and how he is helping people in a different way.
