Summer Camp Presentation
This month our staff and volunteers presented to students at the Emmanuel Lutheran Summer Camp. Students aged 6-14 learned about the various types of Assistance Dogs we specialize in training and how they help children and adults with special needs. The keiki loved learning about the training our dogs go through before they are ready to graduate. They also got to observe a demonstration and visit with puppy in training, Annie!
Wrangler to the Rescue!
A big congratulations to Teddie Garland and Hospital Facility Dog Wrangler who recently completed Team Training Camp! Wrangler works full-time in Portland, Oregon at the Providence St. Vincent Medical Center Pediatric Emergency Department. Teddie's positive, can-do attitude is a perfect match for Wrangler. Together they are helping children and their families cope with serious illness, medical procedures, and hospitalization. Wrangler is the newest member of the Child Life Services Team, pictured above. These superheroes do an amazing job helping children through difficult times. 
OT Outreach on Maui 
This summer, many people on Maui were thrilled to receive OT therapy sessions utilizing Canine Facilitated Interventions. This free service is part of our Community Outreach Program and was provided by Dr. Cate Dorr and our OT interns, Kaitlyn Cruz and Brynne Terry. "Thank you so much for this awesome experience. Eve talks nonstop about the dogs and all the fun things she gets to do." - Parent of OT Recipient

Puppy of the Month: Hank
 
Hank is a very calm and steady puppy who is currently in the Basic Training Puppy Class. He loves going to work with his puppy raiser, Sandy Hall, at Lakeside Industries and showing off his impressive skills for his coworkers. One of his favorite skills is "dress", where he puts on his own puppy in training coat! In his spare time, Hank loves to let loose and have fun with his best pal, Buddy, an American Eskimo, Corgi mix!
