James Waldrop and Liz Walls raise each puppy with love and affection. They often have as many as 20 puppies in training at one time. "We don't train them to do tricks like shaking hands," Liz explained. "Often they are service or therapy dogs who have to interact with older people whose skin tears easily. If a family chooses to teach their dog these familiar tricks when they get home with them, they learn them easily." This pup is about 5 1/2 weeks old.
