LCC K-9 staff members Rich Martin, Dona Martin, Jeanne Moore and Teresa Gray led a training and handling curriculum which was enriched with focus on ministry within the community.

The teams made school and senior living visits as well as spent time on the streets off of Las Vegas Blvd meeting people and offering to pray.

God brought together the Comfort Teams and a mom whose son had missed over 60 days of school due to unknown illness which causes excruciating pain. The team prayed for this child and his mother as they are traveling to UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles this week. The family requested a home visit and Comfort Dog Teams Lois and Luther fulfilled the request.

During the service at First Good Shepherd in Las Vegas, Pastor Cluver thanked LCC for coming to the aid of his home congregation, Calvary Lutheran in Watseka, Illinois. Cluver’s father is still a resident of Watseka and a member at Calvary.

Practicing Socialization LCC K-9 Comfort Dog in Training class practiced socialization, which means exposing the dogs to people, places, situations, sounds, surfaces and things. The apprentice trainers brought in all kinds of props to expose the dogs to such as rolling suitcases, backpacks, long puffy winter coats, cowboy hats, umbrellas, stuffed pythons, and much more. One of the apprentice trainers even brought in a rain slicker and wide brimmed hat, which is not something dogs normally see. The appearance and the sound of the slicker when a person moves is quite different and unexpected for the dogs.

The dogs and the apprentice trainers worked through the challenge of encountering something new in a positive and progressive way. The goal is that the next time the LCC Comfort Dogs in training are exposed to these experiences or something similar, the dogs will be less sensitive and more confident.

The dogs even practiced the commands “front”, “sit”, and “stay” as they circled around the trainer who looked suspiciously like the Morton Salt Girl.
