We’re sad to announce that a few weeks into training, Lulu began to show signs that she wasn’t interested in detecting explosive odors.

All dogs, like humans, have good & bad days when learning something new. Same for our pups, though it usually lasts just a day or two.

There are a million reasons why a dog has a bad day & our trainers must become doggy psychologists to figure out what will help pups.

Sometimes a pup is bored & needs extra playtime, sometimes they need a little break, or it’s a minor medical condition like a food allergy.

For some dogs, after weeks of working w them, it’s clear the issue isn’t temporary & instead, this just isn’t the job they are meant for.

Lulu wasn’t interested in searching for explosives. Even when motivated w food & play, she was clearly no longer enjoying herself.

Our trainers’ top concern is physical & mental well-being of K9s. They made difficult decision & did what’s best for Lulu: stop her training

When a pup is removed or retires from our K9 program, the handler & their family is given the chance to adopt them & many do.

Lulu was adopted by her handler & now enjoys her days playing w his kids & a new friend, & sniffing out rabbits & squirrels in the backyard.

We’ll miss Lulu, but it was right decision for her & we wish her all the best in her new life!
