Caren and her dogs Ginger, Gracie and Mimsy
Caryl-Rose has been instrumental in helping me understand how to translate human language to dog. She has trained me to speak to each of my dogs, and to be aware of their differences and idiosyncrasies, as I have worked with her with all three of my dogs. I found that Caryl-Rose gave me confidence with her quiet, non-judgemental style to keep advancing and learn the special strengths of each of my girls. Gracie was training last week at the Holyoke Soldiers Home to be a pet therapy dog. Not too shabby for a Thomas J O’Connor Shelter stray!
