Carol Deardorff never trained dogs before she started volunteering with the Lutheran Church Charities Comfort Dog Ministries.
Growing up, she was always around farm dogs, but never worked with a K-9 teaching it commands. “I didn’t really have experience training dogs. We never even had a dog in our married life,” Deardorff said of herself and husband Richard.
