Patrick & Ganes,
Patrick & Service Dog Ganes
at Camp Flame Catcher
Patrick writes, “Early this spring, I was able to be a counselor at Camp Flame Catcher, a camp designed to give children with epilepsy the typical camping experience that their peers enjoy, with the added guidance of trained epilepsy specialists to care for their specific needs.
This time I was also able to bring Ganes, my service dog. Ganes' devotion and ability was shown both in and out of vest. He listened to all my commands and seemed happy to do so. A great addition to our experience was that some campers had previously owned service dogs and Ganes put a big smile on their faces!
Ganes did a great job paying attention to me even though he was in a completely new environment. It was also new to have to be in vest for so long each day, but he did a wonderful job and both of us will be very excited to go back to Camp Flame Catcher in the summer!
Foster Family Focus
Marcy & Dean Clarke
We have been fostering Circle Tail service dogs for over 3 years and have been “hooked” since day one. Our first dog, Gatlin, a black lab/golden stole our hearts, especially Dean’s. We currently foster Boulder, our 12th CT dog. We love taking the dogs out, and the response from the public is heartwarming.
It is hard work, to be sure, but we have honed our training skills over the years which is personally very rewarding. We’ve also had countless laughs as the dogs would surprise us with goofy and sometimes unexpected behaviors like walking through the kitchen and nonchalantly pushing a drawer shut, or walking into the room with a laundry basket in their mouth, up in front of their face so they couldn’t see where they were going!
One of our favorites was when I was looking out our back patio door one morning only to have Gatlin calmly walk up and sit down beside me, gazing out into the backyard as well, while gently holding Dean’s glasses in his mouth as if it was his job!!
In 2014 Dean and I also started to help out with all of the building and landscape maintenance on the CT Campus. Dean especially puts in numerous hours in this area every month, whether it is mowing, plumbing, wiring, fixing fences or installing the new Circle Tail signs on the campus.
Our work as fosters, trainers and general volunteers for Circle Tail has given us a new perspective on how amazing these service dogs are, and a respect for the incredible organization that Circle Tail is, so much so that Dean has recently joined the Board of Directors.
