Animal Behavior College (ABC) held its second Commencement Ceremony for the Dog Obedience In-Classroom Program on Friday, Nov. 22, 2013, at the school’s headquarters in Santa Clarita, Calif.
The graduates of this particular class all shared a common background: all 10 are United States veterans who, combined, have served in every branch of the military. The students have a wide range of career goals they want to accomplish. Some want to own their own business; one hopes of becoming a police officer (K-9 unit); and others want to work with service dog organizations, such as Wounded Warrior and Train a Dog, Save a Warrior.
"The sense of pride coming from the graduates is what drives me to continue to make a difference in human and pets lives," said Debbie Kendrick, ABC vice president. "Dog trainers and dog owners will forge a path together to help create a better human-animal bond."
During the ceremony, Best Friends’ Animal Society Playgroup Coordinator, Amanda Yocum, addressed the class and praised their efforts and volunteerism. The students volunteered two to three days a week for 3 months, practicing basic obedience cues with the shelter dogs.
This graduation marks the second class for the Dog Obedience In-Classroom Program. The newest session of the classroom program will begin Monday, Jan. 13, 2014. For more information, please call 800-795-3294.
