Our two week "basic training" has come to a close, and we are left with two dogs of our own to train. PUMPKIN and DEJA, both rescue dogs, will be spending the next few weeks with us, getting used to new environments and new people. Both are very sweet girls, and I'm really looking forward to working with them.
Terry, Kyria, and Karen, our trainers, were absolutely great. They exposed us to this program, let us see the benefits that service dogs can provide servicemen returning from overseas, and gave us the knowledge and confidence we need to make this program work.
