We had a milestone start to September! We had our 6-month check-in with our first service dog Tuve and her Veteran Jeff! She is doing an amazing job with all of her training and taking great care of Jeff. The word is she literally goes everywhere with him, and he is now more comfortable going everywhere because he has her! He is sleeping better at night with her at his side, and they spend hours together with her in his lap on the recliner getting brushed! We could not have found a better match – for both!
While Jeff and Tuve continue to enjoy their lives together, we were busy finishing training with our second service dog, Hailey. Hailey will be transitioning to her furever home at the end of the month. In preparation for that special day(which you can read more about here
), we arranged meet & greets with available dogs from Chip N Snip and Adopt a Rescue Friend (AARF) Houston rescues as we continue our search for service dog in-training candidates.We would like to thank the volunteers for helping us arranging these meetings. It is so great to have such wonderful groups to partner with!
We also welcomed two new Board members, Mike and Sarah! Mike will be our new Vice President while Sarah will be our Director of Communications. To learn more about Mike and Sarah- check out Our team page.
We held our second Monthly Group Lesson and could not be more excited with how it went! We welcomed Brad & Bella and Brianne & Reign to their first lesson with us, and were thrilled to see Beaux & Lady as well as Andrew & Anubis. All the dogs did a great job with their specific tasks and everyone had a great social outing, such well behaved pups we work with! Stay tuned for the progress of all our amazing dogs as they work their way towards STAR Puppy and Canine Good Citizen status!
