So Cute!!! Service Dog In Training Gets To Meet His Favorite Character Pluto!
Pawesome moment excited canine meets iconic Disney dog Pluto
There’s no place like Disney, so Sandy Steinblums took Ace, her in-training service dog, to the Disneyland to get some serious fun and socialization. When they walked by Pluto, Ace was drawn in by the canine character and showed some serious joy and excitement, reported I Love My Dog So Much.
Watch below to see how happy he was! The video was posted by a group called Disney Dorks.
Steinblums is raising Ace, a golden retriever, as a volunteer for Guide Dogs of America, so one day, he’ll be partnered with a visually-impaired person to help them live a happy, independent life. Heading to the crowded park was part of his training.
“We went to Disneyland for a few hours as a socialization experience. What you didn’t see after the 14-15 second video where he settled in a ‘down’, was his ‘down/stay’ for a few minutes while Pluto tried to break his stay,” commented Steinblums on the Facebook video of Ace and Pluto.
“Ace entered his formal guide dog training at the end of January. My job as a volunteer was to socialize and provide him with obedience training. This was a training outing and I was too far back to do a proper correction, but golly-be…he responded anyway. Yep! That is my boy and I am proud of him and love the Disney characters for being so kind and helpful!” continued Steinblums on the Facebook post.
Ace needs six to nine more months of heavy training, and then he’ll have the opportunity to test and graduate as a guide dog, reported The Dodo.
