Sixth grader trains guide dog
Avery Williams, a sixth grader at Kraxberger, recently completed a two-year service project, raising a guide dog puppy to serve a blind person. She attended training sessions and worked daily to socialize and teach basic skills to Truckee, a golden Labrador retriever. This summer, her hard work paid off, Truckee completed training and began assisting his new owner. Avery plans to start training her second guide dog in December.
