September 2023 Pupdate for Gabby
Gabby has been continuing her hearing dog training. We started noticing that sometimes she noticed the sound and responded enthusiastically, and other times looked to us for a cue or help responding to the sound. We have a need for mobility-assist service dogs, so we decided to add these behaviors to her training as well. She has started working next to a wheelchair and learning a formal retrieve, tug, and push. She enjoys all the extra work so far! She has also been back in the classroom with high school students a few times a week since school started back mid-August. She is a favorite of many and keeps us laughing with her antics and exuberance. She also has a devoted evening and weekend foster home who brag about her every chance they get!
