Hi, I'm Rowan! I may look shy and calm, but I am full of energy. When I'm not learning new things, I love to cuddle. I am very smart and will try to get away with things on a leash if I don't know the human on the other end. I don't give up easily. I'm an awesome dog with a lot of potential!

July 2021 Update
Hello Friends, I’m back with a new monthly update. I have been learning to work with multiple handlers, so I can be versatile in many situations. Us doodles need to be all that we can be so that we can assist our recipients. So please tell all your friends to send me treats because all this service dog stuff makes me HUNGRY! I love bacon treats and string cheese along with peanut butter crackers, in case you were all wondering. Well, I'll see you all next month!
Hey Friends! It is me, Rowan, again with another doggie update on what I have been learning this past month with my handler. I have learned how to freeze during an emergency with my handler. In some cases, if my handler sees trouble ahead and asks me to freeze, I know what he is talking about. Plus it is a part of my doggie duties to assist my handler in all situations. It is always fun to share what I learned with all my friends. Well, I have to go, for now, see you all next month!
June 2021 Update
Hello everyone it’s your favorite doodle, Rowan. I am back with another update on some of the fun things that I have been learning. So this month I learned six different colors, red, blue, green, yellow, orange, and pink. I am also learning different shapes and numbers. This month has been so fun and I look forward to learning more colors and numbers next month.
I love to chase my brother Parker around the yard and play keep away. I also love all dog treats that are offered to me. Of course, my absolute favorites are Milk Bones! It’s been fun, but I have to go.
May 2021 Update
Hello fans and friends, it’s me Rowan the red. I am back for another monthly update. This month my handler and I have been working on identifying objects and my favorite one is learning different colors of the rainbow. This is so fun and I have a favorite color which is….. blue! Yay! I love learning and I love giving you all new updates. I love to play tug with my brother Jimmy. I also love to rough house with my other brother Parker. Have fun everyone and don’t forget to check back in next month. Ruff, Ruff see you all soon!
March Update 2021
Hello again, to all my fans and friends. It's me, Rowan, with another monthly update. This month was super fun as I was learning people's names, different objects, and go-get-help. I did this just in case I have to save someone's life. I love learning, but I love me some playtime, hehe!
I really love to spend my playtime playing “tuggy” or just being silly. I love chasing my brothers and sisters around the yard. My favorite treats are chicken bites and I go bonkers for them! Well, I gotta go for now, please check back next month for an update. Schools is in session and I don’t want to be late… ruff, ruff.

October 2020 Update
It's me, Rowan, again! I have to say that September was a good month. I turned one year old! I have learned so much. My handler gave me a good birthday with lots of treats, hugs, and kisses. I look forward to strengthening my skills as I get older. My handler and I have been working on my manners so I can be on my best behavior at all times.
I love to play with my brother during playtime! Of course, I love sleeping but I also love cheese and hot dogs! My favorite toys are anything that squeaks. Well, folks I will be back next month with another update. See ya soon!
September 2020 Update
Hello everyone, it's me Rowan and I'm back to share with you all what I have learned with my handler this past month. I have learned how to help my handler up by "bracing" my body to help anyone get up from off the floor or out of a chair. I am also learning how to "go get help" in case whoever I am helping cannot get up. This is so excited and I love learning new things. Over these past couple of months my favorite playmate that I always gravitate to is Finn. I love chasing him around and just hanging out with him constantly. Well everyone, that's it for now as I will be back next month with a new update. Wish me luck!
June 2020 Update
Hello fans and friends, I'm back with great "paws-itive" news about all my accomplishments for the month of May. So guess what I have been learning... I learned how to remove socks, gloves, shirts, vests, which is so cool. With my new skills I am able to help anyone who cannot remove these items on their own. I am working very hard to become the successful service dog that I can be. My favorite treat is doggie jersey! I'll be your best friend if you have some. :) Well, I gotta go for now, so wish me luck on my journey to success.
