Down on place

Down on place

The Portuguese Podengo is an ancient multi-sensory hound (sight and scent) breed of dog from Portugal. Mix this with a Jack Russell Terrier and you would think you have a crazy dog! They are barkers, jumpers, full of energy, always after that next scent or sight. But if that dog is Willow, she is a perfect candidate for therapy dog … a Love Dog in the making. Just a year and a half old, she has with just two basic training lessons under her belt, shown us how calm, sweet and smart she is. She has already learned to go to her place, walk calmly, avoid distractions,. Sit and stay, come when called and even to leave her beloved ball alone! This is going to be a fun journey for Willow and her person!
