If his legs were longer you could teach him to drive. But wait, do they make hand controls for RVs?

Radar was already trained in mobility before I got the rig. We just had to adapt our old skills to the new rig realities of life. Our original trainer was able to help with that. Radar was used to much wider stairs going up & down before we got the rig; so when going down, he was always at my side to steady me if needed. He had to learn on the narrow rig stairs to stand one step up & behind - sort of off my left shoulder, so I could lean back & grab the short bridge, if I needed steadying, which was just the right height when he's a step higher than me. The long guide dog style bridge is for hauling me up hills, steep inclines, & stairs. When I grab that long bridge, he knows to pull. Believe me, Boxers are powerful! There's a lot of SD training organizations out there. You don't havta be a military veteran for most of them. It's getting the right match between you & the SD that's the essential ingredient. That well matched partnership, along with a trainer who can think outside the box, makes all the difference rv'ing with an SD.

One of our two cats with 40K miles on him. Note here in the desert he has no leash. DW is returning from a hike with him. We've done hikes up to a mile with him off leash. Of course, we do this only where the risk of encountering a dog is zero.

I would love to see more pictures of you canine tool at work. You sound very proud of him, as you should be.
