The D4D training center may be closed due to the “shelter in place” order, but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped working. Programs Manager, Carrie, connects with D4D client, Rose, as she works to meet graduation requirements. Keep up the great work team, Harmony!

Status Update 3/25/2020

We want to shine a little light on your day in the face of all the overwhelming news. We are so excited to share a new life-saving partnership, Rose and Harmony! Help us celebrate this new pair as they work to meet graduation requirements. After all, it is thanks to you, our community, this beautiful new partnership is possible.

A special thank you to those who contributed to the fruition of this team – our Canine Training Partners (especially CTP, Beck Morgan), our training room volunteers, our community partner Guide Dogs for the Blind, and of course the GDB puppy raisers who helped raise Harmony – thank you for helping make a difference, one partnership at a time.

Training Status Update 2/11/2020

Harmony is one step closer to her Medical-Alert Service Dog career – she’s passed her bringsel testing, hooray!

CHECK out her video

You may ask… what the heck is a bringsel? It’s a “toy-like” object that hangs from our dog’s collars – when they detect a dangerous drop in their partner’s blood sugar (by using their amazing sense of smell), they will pick up their bringsel and alert them to this change, even before current technology can!

“Fun” Status Update 2/3/2020

Look at my new toy, I love hanging out & playing with my CTP
