NSD Kira

Kira is currently with her adult raiser. She has started University and goes to NSD for training 4 days a week. When not at NSD, she learns how to settle, cuddle and continue to be a welcomed member of the community. This training will help prepare them to be matched with their client.

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

Training Updates

We love having Kira in our home. She is such a gentle, playful and loveable dog. She is loving her daily trail walks in the snow! She isNational Service Dogs, NSD working on perfecting a few skills each week, like “cuddle”, “turn” and “over”. Kira has been great with her off-leash recall with distractions. We are hoping to be able to have some indoor, in jacket outings soon!

Kira is doing great in our home and did amazing on her most recent assessment. She is currently preparing to start NSD University in 2 weeks. At this time we are working on fine-tuning her skills and improving her confidence around other dogs. When she is not busy with training, she has been loving spending some time at the lake. This is great for practicing her recall with distractions! We are looking forward to seeing where this next step in her training takes her.

Kira will start training at NSD University on May 25th!
