Hello world! Wow! I learned a great new way to communicate with my person! All I have to do is 'alert' him for everything I want and need! How cool.
Next month, I can't wait to continue my nose work games. My sniffer is learning to find all kinds of cool stuff.
November 2022 Update
Hello world! Kai here. November has been a success here at CMC West. The team is showing amazing progress with the new youngsters. The little buggers are a handful, but I see lots of potential and a bright future of service in the little guys. Kai, over and out.
WOW! This has been a busy month. I had so much fun dressing up as a hot dog for halloween. Everyone had such nice things to say about how cool I looked. I got to see Ruthie graduate and two other awesome dogs begin their life of service to those in need. I can’t wait to be like them one day! I even got the chance to show off some of the great things I’ve been learning with all of the amazing humans at NLK9s at graduation. Everyone seemed so impressed and I felt so proud of myself. What an awesome month this has been!
Hi everyone, I just started my journey to becoming a service dog. I was recently placed with my dog handlers at Pleasant Valley State Prison. Stay tuned for more updates and watch me grow!
