Today, hubby and I picked up our new puppy that we will socialize and raise until he’s ready to move on to Advance Training. He is an 8 week old Labrador named Ace (his sponsor is a local golf course), and we are already in love with him.
When we are not pet sitting, we raise service dogs for Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS) that runs out of Vancouver, BC. In our local Okanagan branch of the PADS community, we usually have about 25 puppies at varying ages.
“Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS) breeds, raises and trains fully certified assistance dogs. Our service (mobility & PTSD) and hearing dogs provide life-changing independence to those with physical disabilities other than blindness. Our accredited facility dogs work with community professionals, such as teachers, RCMP and psychologists to help support healthy communities.”
