This year Dogs with Wings is celebrating our 25th anniversary and this week we are highlighting #NationalPuppyDay! Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a puppy trainer for Service Dogs? Meet our Grande Prairie Puppy Trainer, Rebecca!
"Growing up, I have always been taught that we are a community. Communities support each other. When I first joined Dogs with Wings as a volunteer, I saw an opportunity to use my skills in a meaningful way to help others. Dogs with Wings' mission of not charging clients for the Service Dogs they need, but fundraising instead as an organization, fit my core beliefs in giving back and supporting the community at large. The added benefit, of course, is getting to shape the lives of these amazing puppies in my job now as our Puppy Trainer in Grande Prairie. We create community and friendships while enjoying and sharing the accomplishments of these amazing, adorable, four-legged life changers. It’s fulfilling in so many ways. I’m so happy to have spent the last decade guiding puppy raisers and their puppies as they grow, learn, and give back."
