I have been with Delta Therapy Dogs for about 3.5 years.
I thought it would be a good chance for me and Karma to get out more together and meet different people.
We have been visiting Arcare for about 2.5 years now and Karma really enjoys the attention she gets when she goes to visit.
Karma is currently 9 years old and she has been getting obedience training since she was only 2 years old.
She has been competing in obedience trials since she was 3 years old and has earned 4 titles under her collar!
She has a big personality and is always keen to please people and learn new things.
We are not sure of her breed, but let’s just say there will never be another dog like her!
My other dog Kizzie is a beautiful Golden Retriever.
She is a bit of a dumb blonde but she has a heart of gold.
She recently turned 3 years old and I thought it was time she joined Delta Dogs as well.
She has been in obedience training since she was 10 weeks old and she is so happy to finally be out socialising!
So far, she has 2 titles to her name from competitions and I am hopeful of her going further.
Meanwhile, she is learning the ropes as a Delta dog, enjoying all the attention and giving out her signature ‘golden love’.
