Little Miss Maya is a southern belle who joined PADS from a partnership with another service dog training organization down in Texas.  She is lovely, very well mannered, and incredibly eager to learn – often not wanting to end a training session.  Maya settled in quickly with our own dog and cat and spends much time playing/pestering them both – with her own gentle ways.  We have enjoyed little trips to stores, Vancouver General Hospital, and restaurants, in addition to celebrating the holiday season.  A highlight was getting to meet her sponsors, the wonderful couple who own the Kaya Malay Restaurant (yummy!) in Vancouver, who named Maya in remembrance of their own dog who had passed away.  What a lovely way to honour a loved member of the family!!!  Looking forward to many more adventures and to see this sweet pup progress with her training.
