    Thanks all for the great comments. I just got on here for the first time since I posted the picture...

    @JAKEISGREAT, @Davidh, @Sherry, I have to fill you in on my secret for getting him to stay! He can do sit and stay, but as I was walking back to take the picture, with his treat in my hand, he kept getting up to follow me. He seems to "leave it" really well, so I took his treat and put it on the ground in front of him and told him leave it. He keeps his eyes on me for me to tell him to "fetch it up." That is how I was able to get that picture! Secret is out!

    @speechmom53 I'm with @JAKEISGREAT mine would never let a treat stay on the ground for 1 second. Kudos to you for having him trained so well.

    @JAKEISGREAT and @Davidh thanks for the compliments. He has been great since the day we brought him home and great with his training. I would love to get gym certified as a therapy dog but I can't find any classes in my area. But he makes a great girl scout mascot in the meantime!

    Oliver isn't certified yet, have to wait for him to be a year old before he can take the therapy dog institute test, which is basically the same test they give for the Canine Good Citizenship certification. What I did was get onto the AKC's website and clicked the link for CGC testing evaluators and it will give you a name of someone in your area. I was lucky enough that Oliver's instructor for puppy kindergarten was the evaluator. He administered the CGC right at petsmart and it only costs $10. He told me that our local Humane society has an evaluator there for the TDI, so once he's a year (in December) then I'm going to be contacting her about testing him for the TDI. I think therapy dogs are awesome and can't wait until I can start taking him to places so people can love on him as much as he wants since he is a HUGE cuddlebug! Good luck and I hope you have as much fun with it as I am so far.
