This month has been super exciting for Lady II! She has been matched with a client and is learning all kinds of new tasks specifically for her client. She has been working hard in preparation for team training at the end of August! However, it isn’t always work for Lady – she has also been enjoying taking some time off on the weekends and going swimming, hiking, biking and camping. She is always up for anything, which makes her trainer Amy very happy. She is the best girl, and we are all very excited for her to start her career as a mobility service dog. Thank you to everyone who had a part in Lady’s journey. None of this would be possible without our amazing puppy raisers, volunteers and sponsors!
