On Saturday, May 24th a special group of volunteer lead by the project’s volunteer foreman Paul Esposito of Esposito Enterprise constructed a remarkable agility course for the Penn Vet Working Dog Center puppies.
The course includes elements such as
- elevated planks
- see saw and other moving surfaces
- many many more…
This course is essential to advancing the training of the puppies in our program. Many detection dog jobs require dogs to search extreme terrain with great confidence. Learning key skills such as climbing a ladder or traversing a elevated walk-ways is the first step.
This project would not have been possible without the financial support of Home Depot and the great coordination and cooperation with the team at Store 4142 in Folsom, PA.
Thank you to everyone who was involved in making this project a success!
