Fun in the Sun
 
 
People often ask if Service Dogs ever get to have fun. Well, at ADH they do! The ADH puppies in training all have free-run and play time every day. They also enjoy going to the beach and going on hikes upcountry. Pictured here, Soldier and Theo take a break from Advanced Training to share a stick during their swim.
