Louie trains to become an assistance dog

Hi Michele,

Louie was a very energetic Labrador Retriever puppy.
Since I have MS I knew that many dog training activities would be difficult and I was worried that my electric “scooter” might spook other puppies.
Michele came to my home and she figured-out how to adapt the “standard” puppy and basic obedience command to my situation. She also provided suggestions how to obtain the socialization skills we missed by not attending a group class.

A year and a half later, I am now training Louie to be my assistance dog. All the behaviors he is learning are just adaptations or combinations of the building blocks Michele taught us.

Thanks Michele!
