This month, Ashley decided the explore something new with WINNIE. Winnie has always loved to walk just a bit ahead of her handler and is eager to go, go, go, so Ashley decided to explore this quirk, which could be a special skill in disguise! Winnie began pulling work foundations, which requires her to pull a client in a manual chair on various surfaces and inclines. Winnie is a natural and is having a blast! She is also working on her skills and retrieve with her handler in a manual chair and is coming along nicely. Great work, Winnie!
