Buddy makes his first appearance in Advertising in the picture to the right.  And a couple of weeks later, as part of Fire Prevention Week, Buddy accompanied the firemen for the first time to various elementary schools, where he was a hit and enjoyed getting lots of petting from all the kids!

This handsome boy is going to make an exceptional Fire Education Dog with his owner and fireman, John!

Watch for Buddy and John in training for both Obedience and Tracking.  They're going to make quite a team!!
Buddy has quite a full schedule planned for him!  His firefighter owner, John Petroff, will be training Buddy to become a Fire Education Dog.  Buddy will visit schools and other groups to teach the basics of fire safety to children.  They will be doing some Obedience training ... and we're hoping to see them perform in an obedience ring in the future too.  Then there is the tracking that John wants to do.  Buddy may very well become a Search and Rescue dog in addition to his job as a Fire Education Dog.  But first and foremost he is The Best Buddy to his owners John and Sarah.  I coudn't be more proud of this sweet, smart, outgoing, handsome boy!  He's exactly what a 'Dashing Dalmatian' should be.

Watch this page for updates for on their training and as they progress, the programs and classess they'll do (maybe even a rescue or two!).  I'm so proud of you Buddy!!!

Buddy meets Dotti, my Appaloosa, for the first time.  He immediately hit it off with her. 

Of course, Dotti is an expert spotted puppy socializer!
