Here is a cool video of Sheriff, a Lacey and Trout son, that is training with Puppy Jake. Sheriff is currently working on turning on light switches on command. This will help his patient in case they can not reach a light or when the patient is laying in bed and needs to see. We are very excited to see such intelligence and problem solving thinking in our dogs.

RidgeView facility in Iowa has been undergoing lots of changes and updates that have patiently been waiting. We have hung up our sign, got some decorations, painted the interior walls, hung up many of our awards (some still waiting), and have finally hung up our Westminster Best of Breed winner Frosty the Snoman! We are no where close to done hanging up awards and Labrador decor but we are finally starting to put things up.
Our monthly visit to the Strawberry Point Lutheran Home was a great success. We had some cute puppies that went and got some socialization. We have seen lots of smiles and improvement with emotions and interaction with the residents already since we have started bringing in cuddly pups. This is our way of giving back to the community and we love to watch the change that these amazing creatures have on people.
