#JaggersJourney, the incredible story of one shaggy little stray’s amazing excursion from Street to Service. YAY! They did it!!!! Congratulations Jagger and Katie! An essential step in becoming a certified Hearing Dog Team is successfully passing two critical tests – the Sound Alert Certification Test and the Public Access Test. After six long days of intense training, practicing, and building their skills together as a Team, Jagger and Katie took both of their tests Sunday. And, as we knew they would… they passed both with flying colors, qualifying them for graduation and certification.
