Update – Our Shelter to Soldier Trainee, ‘Plato!’

Our Shelter to Soldier Service Dog Trainee Plato is Doing Great!

Our Plato Wags Back partner, Shelter to Soldier reports that over the past few months, it has been an absolute joy to have ‘Plato’ as part of the Shelter to Soldier family. He is full of spirit, love, and life, and his playful attitude brings a smile to all.

Plato has been working hard with his team of trainers to focus on increased interaction in new environments with new people, and desensitizing him to certain environmental stimuli that he does not yet full understand. S2S has also been working on teaching Plato the fundamental obedience commands.

Plato still has a lot to learn from basic house manners and house breaking, to leash manners and focus training on his trainer. All of these more simple obedience tasks must be mastered before he begins his training with any service-related cues.

Plato’s favorite things to do in his downtime are playing ball, getting lots of love from his trainers and volunteers, and playing with his service dog trainee buddies.
