Josie's calm and loving temperament naturally led me to start training her to be an ESA to help ease anxiety and depression for me and my daughters. While this was not something that was essential for us, her capacity to understand and respond individually is absolutely amazing and benefits and improves our lives.
I have been in awe at what she has been able understand and her capability of responding appropriately, it took very little training to help her learn how to help us.
It was through this ESA process that I really decided that I wanted to begin our breeding program. I know there is an incredible need in this world for the kind of love that Josie is able to give to us personally. It was through this training process I found my own personal passion as I discovered Josie's purpose and joy in serving and loving.
As I observe and encourage Josie, her sense of loyalty, intelligence, and ability to love continues to grow and develop, along with her natural-yet gentle-protective instinct. She has an amazing ability to assess situations with caution and as she matures she continues to learn to trust me to help her decipher appropriate responses.
Josie loves everyone and everything she meets, but her loyalty lies with her family and those she knows and trusts first and foremost. These qualities are what I feel sets a Rottweiler apart from other breeds and makes for an ideal family companion or service animal.
