Zola is an ace when it comes to catching her ball—even from long distances. She can open a baby gate, get her leash, and jump two feet on an agility course. She's always ready to give you a smooch and has never let a treat hit the floor. Ever.
The beach is Zola’s happy place. She can chase her ball into the ocean for hours…and she truly believes she can catch seagulls.
Zola covets plastic squeaky balls. In fact she's quite the collector and has over 20 she is happy to show you.
When it comes to food, only the best will do. Royal Canin dog food is the order of the day, but if she can sweet talk you into sharing something from your plate, that's okay too.
More from Zola's owner: Zola is a Service Dog. I got her at 7wks old and she started her training at 8 was old. I have PTSD and Zola is learning how to alert me me when I become anxious. She’s never not with me, and will follow me wherever I’m at. She’s incredibly well trained and gets complimented daily on her stellar behavior in public and she makes me proud every day. She knows when the vest is on, she’s clocked in, and behaves as such ... when the vest comes off, she’s a typical 10 month old puppy with a feisty attitude. Zola has saved my life in every way possible and has given me a reason to get up and face every day. Educating the public regarding “invisible diseases” and Service Digs, has been the best perk of all. She shows people every day what a Service Dog should act like, and it opens a dialogue with people who otherwise wouldn’t talk about Mental Illness es that they struggle with.
