I have had a passion for dogs all of my life which led me to volunteer as a puppy raiser for Canine Companions for Independence. The whole experience was so fulfilling and educative for me. I learned more about how dogs understand us and how to more efficiently communicate with your dog. I picked up things really quickly and I felt confident in my ability to train my puppy. I think the knowledge I gained from it was just the tip of the iceberg for dog training and I would love to expand my knowledge more.
