For insurance protection that safeguards everything you value, we have a special team of experienced insurance guides ready to help. One great indicator to assure you are working with the right guides are their Professional Designations. These require a series of rigorous insurance exams as well as ongoing continuing education to maintain. In most agencies you would be lucky to find one person with a professional designation, but at PEAK we feel this is so important for you that we require everyone to either have, or to be diligently working towards, a designation. Some designations on our team include "Certified Insurance Service Representative (CISR)" or "Commercial Lines Coverage Specialist (CLCS)"

LINCOLN JOHNSON
PEAK AGENCY MASCOT
SEE FULL BIO

DETAILS

BIO
I was “re-homed” to Brent & Robin Johnson in March of 2017 at 6 months old. It has been a wonderful transition for me. I am a Standard Poodle. My particular lineage is known as a “Parti Poodle” because of my brown and white coloring, which I have learned humans find very appealing. My breed is ranked the second most intelligent dog breed just behind the Border Collie (and I would seriously question that based on the Collie’s I know). Poodles are skillful in many dog sports and activities including agility, obedience, tracking to herding and assistance dogs. My relatives have taken top honors including “Best in Show” at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in 1991 and 2002, and at the World Dog Show in 2007 and 2010.

EDUCATION
I have no formal education. However, I have learned several things called “tricks” which I have found to be a great way for me to get the treats I love.

QUALIFICATIONS
Fortunately, I have great looks which are a real plus in the canine world. However, humans quickly learn I am so much deeper than what you see on the outside. I am an easy going, loyal, loving companion who is eager to please. I also love kids and am great around them.

COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES
As I age out of this puppy stage I am starting to take a much more serious look at my community service. I am starting to work with the Humane Society to help my relatives who have not been as fortunate as I have. I am also looking into Service Dog status so I can share my great looks and personality with more Humans.

HOBBIES
I thoroughly love a long walk or run, chasing squirrels, sniffing, watching HGTV and just hanging out with humans.
