Volunteer Puppy Raiser CoachesSeptember 4, 2012

“Jan Upton and Mary Shimel look forward a few times a year to a new puppy coming to live at their homes — blank slates, so to speak, ready to learn.  Autism service dogs are trained beginning at 8 to 10 weeks of age. Upton and Shimel get the puppies and will spend 6 to 8 weeks putting the dogs through basic training — much of the same training that happens with any puppy new to a family.” – Kathy Fuller, The Hillsboro Argus
