Oakley the Water Rescue Newfoundland: Training in Italy & Doors Off Helicopters
Show Notes

Our guest this week is George and his water rescue Newfoundland, Oakley! Oakley was trained to be a water rescue dog at the American Academy or Canine Water Rescue in Boston, MA and started training when she was only 11 weeks old. We did a photoshoot with Oakley last summer and, to this day, is the highest engagement we’ve ever had on a single Dogist post with a reach of 1.8 million. Elias got to tag along with George and Oakley last week while they did a doors off helicopter trial, so we figured it was the perfect time to have them on the podcast so we can hear all about it.
