Aiko

I was lucky enough to be born at the Guide Dog Foundation so you could say I was born to serve. Sadly, after completing some of my training, my fear of thunder and firecrackers ended my dream of becoming a guide dog.Fliegelman - Web - Images from Photo Shoot - Aiko - AU-9576

Suddenly I found myself a dog without a purpose. Luckily, I was adopted by people who recognized my desire to serve. They helped me get over my fear, and continued my training.

I am now a registered therapy dog and I brighten the days of folks at assisted living facilities and nursing homes. I’m also the poster dog for a great company, SWAN. The people who work there say that I represent their desire to be of service to their clients and brokers.

My role at SWAN is to remind everyone that we are all about giving the best possible service to our clients and brokers. I also try to instill a sense of calm to a chaotic work day.
