From Aurelie Douay, Instructor at Green Chimneys School
School started for our new students at Green Chimneys! Our new pups started school last week and met their trainers. The student trainers had a hard time choosing between these cute little fluff balls and the grown dogs. Anna said "I think I'm ready to train a bigger size dog" while walking on a heel with Hero. Louis decided to find the dog who resembled his last service dog in training. "Pumpkin looks like Compass Junior...he is so laid back!" Pups and trainers had a very busy week. They are learning patience. Flour, our 2 month old yellow lab would say "it's hard to wait in the crate...so sometimes I try calling to my boy!" Or jumping on the box..."Iam almost there" would say Sprinkle, one of our new Golden pups...trying to reach the top of the box with her two back legs.
Yes, it will take almost two years for our ECAD pups to make it as a service dog...but its already a good start!
