GOlden Retriever Service Dogs

One of the things I've become involved with is service dog training. I am now the President of a non-profit here in Florida that trains and gifts service dogs to veterans. We exclusively use Golden Retrievers because they are just so perfect for this kind of work. We have 26 dogs at our facility now. Here are a few of them in one of their training sessions:
