Training Status Update: 1/9/22

Darrin has been going to the prison every week to work with the inmates. He is a super chill little guy that settles well next to his handler, continuing to work on loose leash walking, responding to collar pressure, and self control exercises.




Training Status Update: 12/19/21

Darrin is now 5 months old and he is doing great with his training.  He is learning all of his basic commands, practicing self control, and being socialized in a variety of environments.  He is also learning engagement, collar response and loose leash walking.   He has recently begun going to work with his trainer.  Darrin spends one day a week in the Solano Prison Program where he is being utilized to train the inmates how to work with service dogs.  This has been a great experience for him as he learns to work with different handlers.  Darrin is a sweet, easy going puppy who is full of potential.  We have high hopes for him!
