Other highlights to report about are K9 Service Dog, Liberty and the new home of Throw Away Dogs Project in New Jersey:
Service Dog Liberty
Service Dog Liberty is making progress in her training and bonding with her family. She is trained to push buttons, turn lights on and off, open door handles and the refrigerator, help on the train, plane, and bus and in a car. As well as to support the clients head if he falls.
The announcement from Throw Away Dogs Project stated, “Throw Away Service K9 Liberty took a big step with training this past week. We reached that phase where Liberty leaves our home and makes the transition to David’s house. We still train consistently on a daily basis with her but now it’s time to get David and his family more involved with her training. Liberty adjusted well and she continues to be a rock star Service Dog.
K9 Liberty is being trained to assist David who has Cerebral Palsy. Liberty will assist David with his mobility and perform tasks for David that he is unable to do.”
There are 8 other Service Dogs that went through training with Throw Away Dogs Project; 6 went to Veterans and 2 Young ladies, who the dogs serve more as Emotional Support Dogs.
Throw Away Dogs Project Ranch
It took 5 years of planning but as of 10/5/18 Throw Away Dogs can check off one of the items on their Bucket List as they have purchased land to build their training ranch. This 22 wooded acre, of which 7 will be cleared and built on, in Ocean View, NJ, will be the new home of Throw Away Dogs Project and a sanctuary for their dogs in training.
They need all of us to help with this endeavor as it will take a lot of funding to build out this complex.
