PAWesome news for TODAY Extra!
Perhaps we should mention one quality that makes her extra special: she is an Assistance Pup-in-training!
We have partnered with the network to show viewers Lexi’s journey over the next 12 to 15 months, en route to becoming a life-transforming Assistance Dog, capable of providing freedom and independence to people with a wide range of disabilities.
Over the coming weeks and months, Sonia and David will take viewers behind the scenes into the world of a Puppy Educator; the volunteers responsible for the early training of our adorable pups.
Viewers will learn more about the astonishing skills this chocolate Lab will acquire; how rewarding it is to be a Puppy Educator; and how the experts train a dog to have a vocabulary of over 50 cues or commands.
We hope an insight into this special journey will inspire people (singles and families) to become Puppy Educators and raise a dog like Lexi.
We really can’t do it without you. No Puppy Educators, no Assistance Dogs.
