Christine and Cate worked with Tinsel, teaching her basic commands, and the all-important socialization skills. When she was old enough to begin advanced training, Tinsel was returned to the Canine Companions Northeast Regional Headquarters in Medford, N.Y. where staff recognized outstanding traits that would make her an excellent member of the organizations breeding program.
Canine Companions for Independence northeast region executive director Debra Dougherty says, “Tinsel is a very special dog and we’re pleased her offspring will be part of the future of our organization. We can’t thank the Shippee family enough.”
