“Throughout my three years as an ADEPT intern, I’ve been able to work with seven incredible dogs. Each dog provides new opportunities to learn and grow, both personally and as a trainer. Being able to watch partnerships form between clients and our dogs is a magical experience, and knowing you played a role in allowing those partnerships to develop makes all of the challenges we face during training worth it. Interns learn how to advocate for not only our clients and dogs, but also for ourselves. We learn how to tackle life with strength, confidence, and determination. This organization has changed my life in the best way possible and I’m so excited to continue working with PawPADs in order to help change other people’s lives.”
