"Molly was just turning three months old when Guillermo became her teacher. At our first session he asked me what my goal was regarding her training. I answered with enormous pride, "I would like Molly to become a therapy dog and I want you to be her handler." I additionally asked: "Is she too young to begin?" He didn't hesitate answering: "Molly is ready to begin training now and I would be honored to become her handler." Guillermo's training techniques were flawless: consistent correction and praise instructed in a quiet and loving manner. Molly not only successfully learned but she fell in love. Of course, as he predicted, she passed the therapy dog certification testing with flying colors. AND - to boot, she was only a year and a half old. As I watch Guillermo and Molly bring such " heartfelt joy " to those at Covenant House, visiting young adults in such despair, I can't help but falling in love wit him as-well."
