Emmy is Career Changed

We received a call from PAWS this morning and Emmy has been career changed! As you saw in her January 15th update, the trainers at PAWS were working hard on her toy fixation...which they decided they weren't making progress on. Today, Emmy will be relocating to Mid-Michigan Kennels, Inc in Eaton Rapids, MI. There, she will work with Mike and his crew to train to be a detection dog. Mid-Michigan Kennel dogs have gone to work at places such as airports and even for Disney recently. Emmy will have an entrance exam today when she arrives and then will be training with them. We don't know much else right now, but will keep you updated as we hear things. The plus side to all of this is that we'll likely be able to visit Emmy if we want! Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers as we wait to see where Emmy will go!

I know your disappointed but don't be. All our pups choose their path. It's not always the one we plan on. She's going to do great! You gave her a great start. Taylor is arson detection in VA and Kirk is doing bomb detection at Lansing airport. Our Aussie is a therapy dog in SEMI and can't think of a better job than the one she has.
puppy smooches to you

You did a grand job raising Emmy... the start you gave her will help point her in the right direction.

Thank you for all your efforts...

Ahh, I'm sorry Emmy didn't make it at Paws, but it sounds like she is going on to do wonderful things none the less. Good luck to her, and congrats!

I hope you feel this is a positive move. We are very proud of her. PAWS does a great job of finding placements that fit the dog. You have done a great job.
