On June 2, 2014 Ailbe graduated from "Mutts With A Mission" ADI (Assistance Dogs International) service dog program. They'll be accredidated with the ADI by next Summer.
It was a long journey with its ups and downs, but well worth all the effort because I have an outstanding service dog. Training will continue on for the rest of his working years ...
Ailbe will be the 1st service dog to stay with a Veteran at the CLC (Community Living Center - Rehab) at McGuire Veterans Hospital in Richmond, VA. I'll be there for about three months as I recover from a double ankle fusion. They're going to work with me to make this a wonderful experience and to pave the way for future teams who also be allowed to stay with their handler..
