A dozen service-dogs-in-training boarded a Twin Cities flight Saturday as part of the “Can Do Canines,” training program. Preparation for a life of service means exposing the dogs to new experiences. The busy crowds and security of an airport can cause distraction and stress.
Talk about an adorable problem! “Can Do Canines” has too many puppies and not enough foster homes. The Twin Cities organization is looking for people to care for and temporarily foster as many as 28 new puppies while they train to assist people with disabilities. Some of the service dogs help people with autism, while others provide seizure response and mobility assistance.
