Hammond is currently with his adult raiser. He will continue to work hard on generalizing his 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

Hammond is getting very good with ‘over’ and putting his Haltie on (even though he hates it).  He is excellent at ‘leave it’ which reallyNational Service Dogs, NSD helps when I see a dog ahead otherwise he loses his mind. We continue to work on ‘visit’ and made a major improvement noted for ‘OFF’.  When he is thinking about jumping up – we have a great routine….some indoor training ending with a wrestle (he made me say ‘uncle’ today)….then some quiet time. His walking is ok provided the award is kibble although we have had some success trying other things. He has a great time playing with a neighbours’ dog, but he hasn’t mastered my grandchildren yet. He is getting better…they are ages 3 and 1 so are quite small and he gets very excited.
