Sage Gleaned from Mat-Su Shelter for Service Dog Training

Sage, a golden-chocolate lab mix, is making solid progress as her service dog training at Hiland Mountain Correctional Center. Sage’s trainer is prisoner Tamara Riley. Sage came to the program from the Mat-Su Borough Animal Care facility. Since January Sage has learned take socks off and hand them to her handler, and she is working on all the basic commands, in particular “stay.”
