This post is just for a bit of fun but I wondered if dogs could read, how many of them would apply to be my next Assistance Dog!! 😀
WANTED CANINE HELPER
Your challenge should you wish to accept is to work as my partner to help me remain independent.
You will be working everyday, throughout the day but get time for rest breaks, playtime and walks. Some events do not happen everyday, some events will happen in the middle of another one. eg. You need to tell me when my textphone is ringing or someone knocking at door or ringing doorbell regardless of what other job you are doing or if you are playing at the time!
You MUST tell me if the smoke alarm goes off by giving the danger sign (dropping to floor not leading to sound) in case it is ever a real fire.
Helping with dressing and undressing
Laundry duties: including removing clothes from washer and dryer and carrying peg basket outside, picking up any pegs dropped
Tidying your toys away
Helping Inca (my elderly dog) ie opening or closing back door for her if she wants to go out (if I have transferred to bed or sofa) and helping her tidy her toys away.
Public duties: You will be expected to come with me to help with shopping trips and must be on your best behaviour at all times when you are working in public.
You must watch me closely for signed commands to what I need you to do and stay by my side at all times in public places when you are working.
In exchange for this you will receive:
An home for life
All the cuddles you need any time of day or night
All Food & Medical expenses paid (and any ‘professional’ grooming costs if this applies)
Birthday and Xmas presents every year for life!
Trips out to parks, nature reserves and holidays (where funds and transport allow)
At least 90 mins exercise (1 hour mornings, 30 mins afternoon/evening) on non-shopping days and access to your own garden all day.
Paddling pool, agility course, and ball pit available for outdoor play. (A Flyball launcher is also planned for the near future)
Lots of doggy puzzles and treat dispensers for indoor play on rainy days!
So how many applicants do you think I would get? 😀
