Brother of the Wolf Honors its Graduates
Monday, February 22, 2010
Brother of the Wolf, LLC, which promotes gentle dog training, honored some very special people on Sunday. Seven individuals were recognized for either graduating from the Animal Behavior College or from Brother of the Wolf's own Apprenticeship Program.
" These are the best and the brightest," said Dawn Watson, owner of the facility located in Gloucester City. "The future of dog training is in their hands and their work is very important."
Family and friends applauded loudly when each honoree was called to the front of the room to accept his or her award. Danielle Berger received the American Hero Award for her work with feral dogs in Iraq & Afghanistan. John Trainor & Jenna Delgado each received the Rising Star Award for their successes in teaching and public outreach. Sarah Fama, B.O.W.C.D.T., one of two students that graduated from the Apprenticeship Program at Brother of the Wolf, received honors for her high test scores and attendance at public outreach functions. Sara DeLaney, B.O.W.C.D.T, graduated from the Apprenticeship Program and has opened a practice that specializes in sensitive or fearful dogs.
The guests were treated to personal 'snippets' of information about the honorees' lives as Interns or Apprentices; these were punctuated by much laughter as some rather embarrasing moments were remembered. All in all it was a wonderful day to honor some wonderful people.
