Today we take a moment to thank all those who have played a role in making our first year such a success!
With 16 puppies in our training program and our facility developing to accommodate Search and Rescue Dog training as well as Diabetic Alert Dog and Cancer Detection Dog training, we could not be more pleased.
PApa Bear, one of our adorable chocolate labs, needs a new place to call home and a new, loving family to take care of him while he completes his training to be a diabetic alert dog. He has already finished his foundational search training, and in 4-6 months he will be ready to keep his future owner safe and healthy by alerting him or her immediately when their blood sugar is outside the normal range.
The long awaited DVDs are now available for sale. Whether you were unable to join us is April or want to catch training sessions you missed, this is an excellent opportunity.

Today we honor those who lost their lives on 9/11 and pay tribute to the brave men, women and dogs who responded to the terrible tragedy. Today is also the first anniversary of the opening of the Penn Vet Working Dog Center. The Center serves as a living tribute to the Search & Rescue dogs and their handlers who served at the World Trade Center, Pentagon & Staten Island Fresh Kills Landfill.
