Stanley had a busy morning… First stop was the Pet Supply Plus for some socialization and working on his manners. Of course what puppy isn’t happy to visit that store. 😀 Got our shopping done and yes he got his way and got a treat to take home. 👍🏻 Then we were off to Lowe’s where it was a challenge to see all those people but had to keep focus on our task. It can’t be all work… puppies have to have a little fun too. Stanley was allowed to say some hello’s and get a few side belly rubs in while we were there. He was all wiggles over that. He did try to talk me into test driving the ATV but I had to tell him I don’t think they would allow us to do that. So on we went ….

A girls got to do what a girls got to do….
GO SHOPPING….
Today Smallz was on a mission… to find good bargains and that is exactly what she did…. A big candy sale. Smallz did an awesome job maneuvering around the store, keeping focus and finding some good bargains. It is a great opportunity to for these dogs to be exposed to different environments, smells and people to learn to stay focused on their handler.
Great job Smallz … when are we going shopping again. You can sure find the bargains. 😀

Not everyday is an adventure in a puppy’s life… Stanley had to help with the daily chores around the house. It is important to acclimate the puppies to all kind of noises, equipment and routine’s. Stanley waited patiently with a happy wagging tail while the vacuum cleaner was being ran all around him. He never ran from it, barked at it or was scared of it. This was a successful training session while doing our everyday chores. Now if I could only teach Stanley to run the vacuum 😀

Please consider donating toward these pups training so they can give a Veteran a New Lease on Life.

….sorry for the out of focus on the video. 😀

It is important to build self confidence in the service dogs as puppies. Trying to eliminate any fear that they may feel when being introduced to something new in their environment.

This evening, Stanley was introduced to the “tunnel” as a fun way to train and enjoy the wonderful weather outside.

VMF relies on Community Partnerships to continue our mission of giving Veterans a "New Leash on LIfe". We are very thankful to have SteelCloud as part of the VMF family and look forward to our future projects together.

Last year, SteelCloud “embarked” on a lifechanging service project with Veterans Moving Forward. We sponsored the training of a Black Labrador Retriever puppy

Phoenix & I got to attend an Easter Paint Party Up in Smoke in Early, Texas! 🇨🇱 -- because Phoenix is slated to serve groups of Veterans, at each outing we practice polite hellos and interactions ... once she had sat through the my painting session, tucked under the table she got to visit with some new friends a bit !
🐾😊🇺🇸

Thank You Junior & Jen Urias and family for such a fun night and welcoming us! ❤️

Stanley continues to excel in learning new things. We spent some time outside working on the “Look” command which keeps his focus on his handler. There was a lot of distractions which really test his ability to focus on his task. Stanley did an amazing job. As soon as eye contact is made … the marker word is given followed by his reward.
Good job Stanley.

Mark your calendars the 2nd annual cut-a-thon fundraiser is just around the corner on April 6th from 9-2. If you are looking to update your style, for Spring, get a trim or just want to come out and meet us in person,, come join the fun. If you don't live in the area, tell all your friends who live near Alexandria to come out and get a haircut.. The stylists do a great job, and VMF is proud to work with Leah and her team.

If you can't make it out on the 6th and want to donate to the fundraiser via Venmo or text dogs4vets to 707070

Did someone say SPRING… Flowers..Sunny weather ?

Stanley took a trip to Arona Road Greenhouse to look for plants to add color to the days… Stanley continues to learn to be out in the public, different surfaces, smells, the activities going on around him as he focuses on the handler. He definitely enjoyed his trip today.

School? Yes Stanley attended CPR/First Aid/Stop the Bleed refresher training. It is important to introduce him to the medical field, equipment and personnel. Stanley was very well behaved staying next to his handler laying quietly during class. Once the hands on portion began Stanley was able to socialize get to meet the “victims” see the emergency personnel bags… etc. It is important for the service dogs to be comfortable in all surroundings.

Socializing service dogs is so important, children and babies are probably the most important. We work hard to make sure they know how to behave appropriately and have wonderful, trusting volunteers that will bring their beautiful babies in to meet the dogs.

So much more is still needed y'all- from expanding the facility to adding new dogs to the program, they need every cent of their goal to be raised- and there is STILL time to make a difference. Cheers to supporting those who served out country honorably and now need OUR help. ❤
