This little hero in the making is Aiden! He is a service dog-in-training with Canine Partners for Life (CPL). Trooper Veterinary Hospital is a proud sponsor for this wonderful program. Aiden is the third CPL puppy that will have all medical care, surgery, vaccinations, and preventatives provided by Trooper Vet during his first year so that he can stay healthy and be prepared for his future as a service dog. Recently, Dr. Cleary had the pleasure of giving Aiden his first examination and vaccines and we think he had a fun visit, filled with yummy rewards! Aiden’s handler is Bethany B., an Ursinus college student. You might ask if Aident attends classes with Bethany…and the answer would be YES. She is providing basic training and socialization for Aiden per the CPL program. Bethany is very interested in canine behavior and is loving the opportunity to help Aiden learn how to be a great service dog who will make a powerful difference in someone’s life. Aiden will return to CPL for extensive training when he is about a year old. We are proud of you, little guy! Learn lots and be great!
