Pat Mitchell's Super Dooper Training Partner
Dooper is Pat and Dirk's thirteen-year-old high-energy Llewellin (field type) English Setter breed of dog. He holds the American Kennel Club (AKC) certificate as a Canine Good Citizen (CGC), Alliance of Therapy dogs certification and is a graduate of Jo-Thor Training Academy.
Together, Pat and Dooper teach people how to teach their dogs. Pat says, “Sometimes having Dooper as my ‘canine helper’ lets students get a better feel of what to do in class. They can watch us demonstrate the move or command, trick or agility event. Even the dogs watch and learn from him. It’s kind of cool.”
Dooper is a great traveler and is always ready for a trip to the beach and to the mountains of Park City, Utah. He lives with two cats: Molly and Scully and human-daddy, Dirk. At thirteen years of age, he's slowing down but still active and very active compared to most dogs.
