Paige was chosen by an Active Duty Military Veteran at just 8 weeks old. She will need to go through the basics of sit, stay, drop, leave it and go potty before she can spend more time with her Veteran. Paige has already learned “bring it” and “here” with the help of Jato.
And when she starts to play too hard, she’s learned that Nitro is the Big Dog. Boom and Diesel have also shown her where the potty areas are and where to get the hidden doggie treats. We’ll keep you posted on Paige’s progress here on our website and on Face Book. Paige turns 1 year old on Friday July 22! Look how she’s almost out grown her vest! She’s still in training and will continue adding to her tasks throughout her lifetime. Consider a donation to Big Paws Canine to help fund Paige or any of our Service Dogs equipment such as leashes, kennels and food as they grow up and wear out these items quickly. Paige is busy learning all the task to become a great service dog. She loves having her vest on and knows it makes her something special. With her beautiful color she knows she’s going to look hot in a red vest like the other dogs in her class. Support Big Paws Canine and Steve and staff for all the work they are doing for our vets.
We hope this dog’s story has inspired you. If so, please make a donation and help her and other service dogs get the training they need to be a companion for our veterans!
