For the past 18 months, Leslie Zelamsky, Obedience Manager, has raised Bryn, an assistance dog in training for Canine Companions for Independence. Especially for Pets proudly sponsored this very special puppy by donating all necessary supplies, food and training and collaborated with Framingham Animal Hospital who donated her veterinary care.
On May 13, Leslie brought Bryn back to the Canine Companions facility for advanced training. Bryn has now entered the third leg of her journey with the goal of graduating and being placed with a disabled person. She will undergo numerous health and temperament assessments and also begin her advanced training work. Read Leslie's last journal entry about the experience.
