VESPER had lots of fun spending time with George gaining new handler experiences in different environments. She is back with Ashley to continue polishing her service skills and general default behaviors. She is further exploring working with someone in a manual chair and is doing great! She has started practicing “pull,” a skill that requires her to pull a client in a manual chair and packs a lot of punch for such a small girl! She hopes to be ready to pass her pre-placement testing in the next month or so. Keep up the good work, Vesper!
