Golden Retriever vs. Lab? At Helping Paws, They're Both Winners!

In this episode, we are joined by Amanda, Brenda, and Lynn; 3 amazing individuals who work together at Helping Paws to uniquely create new opportunities to achieve their goal of  furthering their impact and getting more people involved  by growing their community on social media!

Helping Paws is a non-profit organization located in Hopkins, Minnesota.  They are dedicated to the breeding, training and placement of assistance dogs for people who have physical disabilities and for Veterans and first responders who have PTSD.  They also provide facility dogs that are partnered with a facilitator working in a care giving, educational or courtroom setting. 

Fun fact: Early experiences showed that for successful service dog training, we needed to start with PUPPIES to begin shaping behaviors early in each dog’s life! The first dog to complete such training and be placed was Alpha, a Golden Retriever who went on to serve his partner for many years.

The human and animal bond is the foundation of Helping Paws, and they celebrate the mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between them each day! At any given time, they have 50-70 dogs in training. Talk about AMAZING!
