ClickerExpo and Karen Pryor Academy (KPA) faculty member Julie Shaw shared this video with us in tribute to Faith, the service dog she clicker trained for her son, Dylan, when he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Although Faith died of lymphosarcoma at the young age of six, she continues to touch lives as well as spread the merits and joy of clicker training. Julie shares in this month’s article, Reaching the Veterinary Community: An Interview with Julie Shaw, that Faith had a large influence on both her family and her career as a trainer, teacher, and animal behavior technologist. Faith was much more than just a service dog for Julie’s son; she was a faithful companion, teacher, mentor, and guide.
