Journey and Connie Anderson

Meet Journey, a Bernese Mountain Dog born to spread cheer and comfort. Journey is owned by handler Connie Anderson and gives100% of her 90 pounds to ensure that everyone she meets feels an emotional boost. At 3-years old, Journey has earned multiple AKC certificates including Canine Good Citizen and Urban Canine Citizen. She is currently training towards the Community Canine Citizen and is expected to pass with high marks. In addition to her Certified Therapy Dog status, Journey has tapped into her ancestral roots and learned to pull a cart (a.k.a drafting) and loves marching in parades delighting spectators. Journey can be spotted encouraging youngsters to read in the CDA Library Children’s section during the Paws to Read Programs. Journey is a life-long learner so obedience training and trying new things defines her future. In the meantime, her human and team partner, Connie look forward to visiting the K-12 students throughout the Coeur d'Alene School District to celebrate the everyday joy experienced when connecting dogs and humans.

There are times when we all need a break from our everyday stressors and could benefit from extra cheer.  Be sure to ask Connie for one of Journey’s trading cards!
