Pet Partners requires the animal to have lived with or known the handler for at least six months to be evaluated. This is Dante. He was adopted three weeks ago and has begun his journey to Love Dog. The six months will go quickly and he will hopefully be ready to volunteer for our summer programs! His handler will attend a spring Handler Workshop and take him to the next step to become a Love Dog. That is the goal.
Dante is blind and learning with different techniques and just so smart! We will follow his progress but even after a first training session, we can see how quickly he learns and retains what he has learned and his owner is going to be a wonderful volunteer at the other end of the leash!
