Scent Detection Goes Live at Seabury Hall

For 2 weeks in March, we screened for COVID-19 at Seabury Hall. Our Super Sniffers, Sadie, Tess, Grace and Georgia, screened sweat samples from volunteer students and staff. This research has the potential to provide early detection and slow the spread of the virus. Our hope is that dogs can be used in public places for an additional level of safety. 
Special Visitors at Sadie's Place
We were thrilled to welcomed Ally Tamayose, her sister Keely, and parents, Dayle and Tory, to our campus this month. Ally also got a surprise visit from her special friend, Dr. Wendi Major, who used to visit her with Hospital Facility Dog, Winnie, at Kapiolani Medical Center when Ally was hospitalized for cancer treatment. Ally recently celebrated her Sweet 16 birthday and was on Maui for the day. She said it made her day to meet the G-litter girls and the adorable puppy, Nalu. In fact, she and her sister commented that it was "better than Disneyland!" Seeing them was a real gift to all of the ADH team. 

Puppy of the Month: Nalu 

Nalu is now 3-months old and is in Kindergarten Puppy Class. He is a very social and confident puppy that enjoys playing with the Advanced Dogs on campus. He also loves his squeaky toys! He is currently learning to walk on a leash next to his puppy raiser. Mahalo to ADH Office Manager, Marsha Sarver, for puppy raising Nalu!

Harper and Jordan Update 

Jordan's freshman year is going well with Service Dog Harper by his side. They have been partners  for 4 years and Jordan describes Harper as his best friend. In a new video about this team, Jordan's mom describes all the ways that Harper helps Jordan, from picking up his phone (which he drops a lot!) to helping alleviate his anxiety over exams.

Visiting Ka Lima O Maui

We had the opportunity to visit Ka Lima O Maui's new center with puppy-in-training, Nalu! Ka Lima provides job training and employment opportunities for adults with disabilities. Nalu spread lots of puppy love to the participants and staff. He also showed off his newest skills of "sit", "down", "roll", and "wait". We're looking forward to resuming monthly visits from the Ka Lima O Maui participants at Sadie's Place, where they volunteer to help with custodial tasks and dog grooming.
