Who Are They?
Amber is a 13 year old, very motivated young woman. She started helping raise dogs with her family in the spring of 2009. First they worked with Guide Dogs for the Blind and then lucky for us, they found us and in August 2010 started helping Brigadoon with raising dogs.
During an event called Harbor Hounds in Gig Harbor, Amber's Dad found Eva as a young 8 week old pup. She's a black Lab mix rescued from the Kitsap Humane Society. They picked her up for Brigadoon and trained her as instructed by Denise Costanten. Although Eva didn't make it as a service dog, she is a wonderful demo dog and ambassador to Brigadoon.
Amber and Eva are now very strong competitors in Dock Dogs. They go to competitions and are jumping to raise funds for the dogs in training with Brigadoon. Their hope is to raise awareness about Service Dogs as well.
