Talos (Big T, as I affectionately call him) made the news in Charlottesville, VA.
The Great Dane and his new partner, Kathy, kicked off their Transfer Camp.Transfer Camp helps both the service dog and the recipient familiarize themselves with one another. And a local tv station was there to capture the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
Kathy learns all about service dogs.
The law, Talos’ needs, how he can help her, his cues, how to care for Talos, and much more. Talos learns all about Kathy: her gait, how her cues may differ from what he’s used to, her needs, and her personality.
Camp days are long.
They’re tough. There’s a lot of learning and bonding that needs to happen in two weeks. But I know Kathy and Talos are up to that challenge.
