"Chipper is extremely obedient. All I have to say is 'Chipper will you help me' and he is by my side, eager to help. We work, travel and play together. He’s also a great listener and is completely devoted to me. He's the best friend I've ever had."

JULY PUPPY PIN UP - SOPHIE
"Sophie came to us in mid-April as an eight week old puppy and has added so much to our lives. She is the first puppy we've raised and I'm afraid she has spoiled us for any future dogs! She is so loving, affectionate and eager to learn. She is incredibly smart and I have enjoyed learning along with her. She is so well behaved and honestly doesn't have any bad habits. I think she will make a wonderful Service Dog for her future partner!" -Thea Engesser, HCI Puppy Raiser.
