On January 12 Cindy Ludwig spoke to a group of college students at Loras College enrolled in a course on communication between dogs and humans being taught by Dr. Maggie Sullivan. The students learned about communication from a trainer's perspective and watched as Opal performed some of the service dog tasks she has learned with clicker training. The class thanked Cindy with a Loras sweatshirt and Opal with a bag of dog treats! KWWL News was there for the first part of the presentation - see the video here!
