It’s been a busy month for Buckeye! With professional training right around the corner, Buckeye is putting the final touches on his basic training and is getting ready for the next step in his journey to become an assistance dog.

Buckeye in the Windy City

What better way to prepare than with a trip to Chicago and a football game at The Ohio State University? Buckeye is no stranger to flying and handled his second trip like an old pro. While in Chicago, Buckeye hung out among the high rises at HAUTE DOG | CHICAGO, doggie runway fashion show. He was able to practice his commands while walking down Michigan Avenue and did a wonderful job at ignoring the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Buckeye Cheers for the Buckeyes

Fall in Columbus, Ohio means watching Ohio State football and there’s no better way than to watch live in the Horse Shoe. Not only did Buckeye get in lots of practice with greetings at the tailgate party before the game, but he also had to be on his best behavior while in the stadium during the game.

It’s a Girl!

Another fun adventure Buckeye participated in was revealing the gender of friend and NBC4 family member, Jennifer Bullock’s, baby on the way. Buckeye was excited to give the pink toy a big squeak and let all the viewers know that Jen and her husband would be adding a little girl to the family.

Buckeye has just under one month of adventures left with his volunteer puppy raiser and NBC4 family before heading to professional training. We wish him the best and can’t wait to see what his future holds!
