CADENCE continues to make lots of progress in her training, particularly enjoying learning to retrieve all kinds of things from various ‘hiding’ places around her training space. Cadence continues to enjoy working in the bracing harness and is even practicing a modified “tug” skill to help her potential client stand from a sitting position. We hope to have Cadence ready to run through pre-placement testing in August. We look forward to sharing more news soon!
