Tango has recently been paired with his Veteran Ken, who happens to be the new VP for The Rescue for PTSD! Ken is a retired Marine Colonel who has led a very interesting life which you can read about here. We are so excited to have Ken on our Board and are thrilled that Tango is going to such an amazing home. Ken and Tango will be attending our monthly group lessons so they can continue the service dog journey together!
We had such a fantastic Group Lesson yesterday, so much to share! Our teams have been working so hard and it shows! There were 7 teams working in our first group and 6 teams working in group 2. Three students from Paws for Purpose were also there volunteering to help train our full-service dogs. This all kept our amazing trainer Sam (Working Paws K9 Training) busy keeping everyone on task! Congratulations to Rita & Mikey and Jordan & Dax, both teams took and passed their Canine Good Citizen Tests! They are now one step closer to having their pups be service dogs. Way to go ladies!! We also welcomed new member Dutch with his canine partner Shadow, who are already doing fantastic practicing their obedience work. We can’t wait to share next month’s activities with everyone!
