We are thrilled to announce that BURKE has officially been matched with a client and will start team training very soon! Burke’s big lovable personality and his ‘Oh Burke’ antics will support and improve the life of his new client and we are so excited to see this new team begin the process of bonding and forming a strong working relationship. While he waits for team training to start, Burke has been working on client specific skills such as nightmare interruption and solid obedience to best support his client. Burke’s trainer Miranda is so very proud of Burke and, along with the rest of the PADS Puppy Raising and Advanced Training Department staff, is beyond excited to (finally) see Burke find his place! We would like to send a special thanks to Team Burke; this has been a long time coming and we greatly appreciate your patience and support. None of this would have been possible without you! We wish Burke and his client all the best as they work on building a strong working bond. Congratulations Team Burke!
