Casey is Official!
Casey successfully completed her final working exam with handlers Rebecca Troutt and Nikki Wiggins at Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Portland, Oregon. Casey loves her dream job as she provides comfort to children and their families. Studies show that Hospital Facility Dogs can lower stress, distract a child from pain, ease a child's fear of medical procedures and leave a child happier and more relaxed. Congratulations to Casey! 
Advanced Training in Portland
Mikey, Gilligan and Hudson recently went on a road trip to Portland, Oregon to work on their Advanced Training skills in the big city. They worked on distraction training and practicing skills in new environments. Pictured here is Gilligan, who is waiting patiently for his trainer, Sarit, to join him on his next adventure!
