We received this update on Berkeley Springs, one of our sponsored Guide Dog puppies in training. He’s very close to graduating and may be paired with a person with a disability, soon!
Berkeley Springs is finishing up his guide training and is working on the subways, doing city work and crowd work, taking country walks, mall work and riding escalators. They are increasing distraction levels on all of his work and maintaining levels of concentration. He has some slight noise sensitivity, but that is all. His trainer says that he loves him and he is doing very well.
Join us in sending our well wishes and support to Berkeley Springs as he reaches this important milestone in his training. His life of service will mean a more independent life and freedom for a person with disabilities.
Go forth young Berkeley Springs! You can do it!
