This past weekend, LCC K-9 affiliates around the country came together for training and education at Spring Regional Gatherings.
Five regions met in five states (Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Nebraska, and New York) to work with LCC trainers and their K-9 teams. Along with fellowship, they participated in discussions on mental health, health maintenance for the dogs, and connecting with veterans. LCC K-9 affiliates meet regularly throughout the year to further the education and training needs of their K-9’s and teams. Five LCC K-9 staff trainers deployed out to the gatherings to review and refresh handler skills.
In New York, in addition to the Northeast Regional Gatherings, teams welcomed into the region our newest addition Abraham Comfort Dog at Trinity Lutheran in Hicksville, New York, during his Passing of the Vest service.
