Charlie "Shake"

Glad you could join Olivia, Charlie and Katie for today's pupdate. Charlie has been working on his manners when greeting people. It is always best to ask a handler with an Assistance Dog if it is alright to interact with their working dog. Sometimes, when the dog is working the handler may offer a polite "No, thank you" as an answer. However, some of our veteran handlers struggle when interacting with the public and by teaching Charlie how to politely shake someone's hand the veteran now has a bridge to engage the public. Charlie is growing up to be such a gentleman. He's going to go on to do great work.

See you next time!
