Cooper Just About Ready For Service Dog Duties

Cooper has been in training for just about 2 1/2 years, and he is ready for his final placement, said prisoner trainer Cindy Galvan. “I’m going to miss him, but he is just about ready for adoption.” Cooper knows hand signals. He can brace, and he can help you go up and down stairs. He takes the garbage out and he can open and close doors,” Galvan said. “He can be just a little clumsy, for example he just can’t turn light switches on and off. But he’s going to make someone a good companion.”
