dog bless you: gucci gives birth to gucclettes
Meet Maya, a yellow lab/golden retriever mix. She is 2 1/2 years old, and this is her first litter of future service dogs. ECAD chose Maya for her stable temperament, ability to adjust to change, calm demeanor, and willingness to please. The father of this litter is Spenser, a stud dog from Guide Dogs for the Blind. Spenser has a calm demeanor and is highly adaptable, which are crucial characteristics for a well-bred service dog. ECAD has used Spenser as a stud in the past, and so far 100% of his offspring have or will go on to work as service or therapy animals.
ECAD breeds and trains Assistance Dogs for clients with a wide variety of disabilities and needs. Our dogs are taught to retrieve items, open doors, activate light switches, pull wheelchairs, balance, brace, and perform many other highly specialized tasks through the ECADemy© training program.
Project HEAL© is a program offered by ECAD that honors and empowers Wounded Warriors by providing specially trained Service Dogs to increase independence and make a difference in their lives.
Our Project HEAL© Service Dogs are individually trained by at-risk teens in our ECADemy© program. These specially trained dogs pick up dropped objects, open and close doors, open refrigerators, pull wheelchairs, prevent overcrowding in public, interrupt nightmares and flashbacks, remind to take meds, warn of approaching strangers and reduce anxiety and stress, all the while providing unconditional love and comfort. ECAD does not charge our Wounded Warriors for these very special Service Dogs.
