When the weather doesn't cooperate, training is moved inside! Yesterday we took our one year old service dogs in training to the Dulles Town Center to brush up on behavior in public. It's always a good idea to go back to basics and make sure foundation behaviors are solid before moving ahead. This gives us as trainers a chance to understand each dog's personality and get a chance to train with them before moving to task work.

Thank you for allowing my boys to assist with your therapy dog training. They are still talking about the experience a week later.
YOU. GUYS. I have a huge announcement: I matched with a service dog! I know times are tough right now, so if you can’t donate, please share! My new buddy Nathan and I are due to start training together in August. He’s such a lovable, goofy, big guy and I can’t wait to start this journey! Also if anyone has any fundraising ideas, let me know! I have set the funds to go directly to Heeling House!
