Canine Connection owner and professional trainer Cindy Ludwig writes letter to the editor of the TH about dog bite prevention
According to Cindy Ludwig, it's not the breed, but a host of other factors that contribute to dog bites, many of which are preventable. Read the letter in Sunday's Dubuque Telegraph Herald.
Cindy Ludwig was asked to assist the city in production of a video for the new bus system, the Jule. She demonstrated how the bus is accessible for people with service dogs.
Opal, the Golden Retriever that came to live with us this past fall has completed training and testing requirements to be a certified demonstration dog with Paws with a Cause! Essentially, she needed to be able to perform at the same level a service dog would be expected to perform, according to standards set forth by Assistance Dogs International and Paws with a Cause. Opal will wear a vest to identify her as a demo dog and will go along on needs assessments of applicants for service dogs as well as presentations about service dogs on behalf of Paws with a Cause.
