NSD Unity

Unity 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

Unity is an energetic girl who likes to be on the move. She loves to meet new people and is very attentive (especially when there are treats). Unity has been great in public, settling nicely in different environments, and taking her role in-jacket seriously. We are currently working on her meet and greets and door manners as she can get pretty excited and just can’t resist the urge to jump. I believe she would also make a good agility dog because she can jump like a deer and is overall very quick ;). Unity has recently become very good at visiting, overs, and cuddling, where she will take a nap on your lap. During the day, she loves to go outside and run in the snow but at night she’ll often be found curled up on her bed and snoring. This girl is so full of love and is such a joy to raise.

Unity will be graduating as a PTSD Service Dog. They will be matched with their handler and do their team training in April 2021.  Unity is a happy, sweet and attentive girl that will be an excellent partner for her teammate.
