Service Dog Training Log for “Talon”
Celhaus Take It to the Limit
the former Mr. Brown from the TT litter.
My friend, Laurie, is training Talon to be a service dog. This training log details everything Talon learns on his way to becoming certified as a service dog. His training is so intense that I have created a page for each month’s entries and evaluations.
