NSD Keeper

Keeper is currently with her adult raiser. She will continue to work hard on generalizing her cues and house manners in a new environment, with a new handler. This stage of training is to prepare them for University.

All of the training and care provided to each dog would not be possible without the support of generous volunteers and donors.

Training Updates

NSD Keeper is an absolute sweetheart and fits into our family seamlessly. She had limited experience with children before coming toNational Service Dogs, NSD our home but it’s as if she grew up with them. She is a natural with children. She is so patient and gentle with our 3-year-old and is genuinely interested in what she does throughout the day. Keeper follows our daughter around, listens to commands she gives and even plays hide and seek. Keeper allows her to dress her up and play “spa” with her (brushing, massaging, pretend pedicures). We know NSD Keeper will be a life-changer for one lucky family.
