We have some exciting news to share with you about our friend Henry The Wonder Reading Dog! Henry and his handler Patti recently took a summer class together. Henry knows that even though it is summer break it is important for him and his handler to keep their skills sharp by continuing to learn and practice over the summer break.
Henry earned his “Pups on Patrol” credentials from the Denver Police Department – District 3 yesterday. He worked with Officer Jim Lopez.
Every few weeks, Denver Police Department invites dog owners to attend their Pups on Patrol class to allow dogs and their handlers to be certified in helping to sniff out crime in the Denver Metro area. The Pups-On-Patrol program gives dog owners (and dogs), the tools and tricks to effectively observe and report suspicious activity. So now Henry The Wonder Reading Dog is helping to take a bite out crime by being an extra set of eyes and ears for the Denver Police Department. Through hard work and continuous training Henry the Wonder Reading Dog has gone from an abandoned hurt stray to one great dog helping kiddos and keeping our communities safe. We are so proud of him and his handler. Go Henry!
