Training Updates

Nacho is doing so well with his training and we’re so proud of the dog he’s grown to be. He is a funny guy National Service Dogswho gets the most excited about his puppy friends and peanut butter, but he also has a very tender heart and knows when his humans need a good cuddle. He is moving on from us (his puppy raisers) in a week and we are so so so sad to see him go, but know he will go on to help someone who will benefit greatly from his comedic relief, his cozy snuggles and his helping paw!

Nacho is an amazing dog. So gentle. He loves my boys. We continue to work on loose leash walking with distractions. We practice skills a couple of times a day and walk three times a day. He loves being close and is transitioning very well.

He loves cuddling and being close. Nacho is really working on staying on his mat when people come to the door. Nacho loves hikes, loves being around and playing with kids. Everyone thinks he’s beyond handsome and such an amazing dog.
