Paws for Wounded Vets – Pet Photography Shoot

Wow this was an amazing experience! I was fortunate enough to get to spend time with the PAWZ, CST Puppy Raisers group and document their week long service dog training sessions. These wounded vets and other disabled individuals were learning for the first time how to handle their new service dogs, in private and in public. I was amazed at the in depth 10 day training event and how much they would learn. The sessions included visits to the mall, learning how to properly care for and maintain their service dogs, and education on how to continue to reinforce the extensive training that these dogs have already received. The dedication of the PAWZ group remarkable. These ladies and gents really care about both vets and dogs and make no bones about the fact that they expect these working dogs to be treated well and as as part of the family. Needless to say I was very impressed and enjoyed getting to know this very cool group of people. Congratulation guys and great job guys! I enjoyed hanging out with and look forward to seeing you all again in January’s graduation!
