Today we had our mini trainer Max over with his family, Lauren and Connor and their pup Tully for some special socializing time! Miss Pearl had a great time interacting with young Max and learned how to stay calm and tolerant of babies! She gave him lots of love an attention and Max did a great job helping pearl learn a lot about socializing with children. She was patient and tolerant and was very happy to meet him! Thank you to Lauren, Connor, Max, and Tully for your continued support of this special program and helping these pups learn the ropes!

Today is the day! Today we met with the puppies and finally got to confirm our selection of sweet Pearl and her sister Britta (Ms. Purple). The pups have had a great adventure over the last few weeks but it doesn’t stop there! Our team worked with the puppies today and evaluated them to make the final decision on who would be the best candidate for our Therapy Dog program. The pups were tested on confidence, obedience apptitude, and personality. While each of the pups in this amazing litter would have been great options we finally decided that Ms. Yellow, now Pearl, and her sister were the best fit! After selection they had a chance to decompress and get to meet their new guardian dog, Nori, who lives with our lead trainer. Nori and Mandie will be working with the two pups for the next 1-2 months in their home for intense board and train to ensure proper socialization takes place in their critical socializing window to help set them up to be stable, confident adult dogs!
