The April 6 special guest at Critter Club at Monta Loma Elementary in Mountain View was Wendell, a former service dog in training who was accompanied by his person Suzanne. PAHS loves taking dogs like Wendell to educational sessions because one of our major goals is to show students how service dogs help people in a variety of circumstances. As a volunteer with experience in housing service dogs, Suzanne was very much at ease in explaining about Wendell’s training and his re-adaptation to becoming a family friend.
In addition to learning about Wendell in particular, students also reviewed concepts around dog safety and best practices for the care of canine companions. Everyone loved meeting Wendell, and we think he too enjoyed his time at Critter Club. Thank you, Suzanne and Wendell!
